Adding NetworkManager Connections via CLI

Summary

Support for adding new NetworkManager connections using the nmcli commandline tool.

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 20
  • Last updated: 2013-07-17
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

Administrators will be able to configure new connections via a simple command-line interface. It will be possible to create and activate new connections, as well as delete them.

Benefit to Fedora

Users more comfortable with the command-line will now have a capable network configuration tool in addition to directly editing network configuration files. Adding and changing network connections is a common task and should be easy to do from the command-line, in addition to GUI tools like nm-connection-editor. These enhancements will add support for configuring all major network connection types supported by NetworkManager (including bridge, bond, vlan, wifi, ethernet, 3G/4G, etc) from an interactive mode of nmcli.
