Trying to run gnokii on my iBook with OSX (OS 10.3.9) to get a backup of my address book on my Nokia 6230i. No luck.

This is the config file I’m using:

port = aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
model = 6230
initlength = default
connection = bluetooth
use_locking = no
debug = on

I’m using an external Bluetooth decive on USB.

This is what I get, no matter whether I am connected to the phone via OSX or not:

alpinobombus:~ alex$ sudo gnokii --identify
GNOKII Version 0.6.8
Couldn't open PHONET device: Operation not permitted
Telephone interface init failed: Command failed.

I also tried using model = 6510 like they do on the wiki, to no avail.

I’m not sure whether I should connect to the device using the OSX Bluetooth wizard before running gnokii or not...
