nm_client_activate_connection_async ()

void
nm_client_activate_connection_async (NMClient *client,
                                     NMConnection *connection,
                                     NMDevice *device,
                                     const char *specific_object,
                                     GCancellable *cancellable,
                                     GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
                                     gpointer user_data);

Asynchronously starts a connection to a particular network using the configuration settings from connection and the network device device . Certain connection types also take a "specific object" which is the object path of a connection- specific object, like an NMAccessPoint for Wi-Fi connections, or an NMWimaxNsp for WiMAX connections, to which you wish to connect. If the specific object is not given, NetworkManager can, in some cases, automatically determine which network to connect to given the settings in connection .

If connection is not given for a device-based activation, NetworkManager picks the best available connection for the device and activates it.

Note that the callback is invoked when NetworkManager has started activating the new connection, not when it finishes. You can use the returned NMActiveConnection object (in particular, “state”) to track the activation to its completion.

Parameters

client

a NMClient

 

connection

an NMConnection.

[allow-none]

device

the NMDevice.

[allow-none]

specific_object

the object path of a connection-type-specific object this activation should use. This parameter is currently ignored for wired and mobile broadband connections, and the value of NULL should be used (ie, no specific object). For Wi-Fi or WiMAX connections, pass the object path of a NMAccessPoint or NMWimaxNsp owned by device , which you can get using nm_object_get_path(), and which will be used to complete the details of the newly added connection.

[allow-none]

cancellable

a GCancellable, or NULL

 

callback

callback to be called when the activation has started

 

user_data

caller-specific data passed to callback

 

nm_client_activate_connection_finish ()

                                      GAsyncResult *result,
                                      GError **error);

Gets the result of a call to nm_client_activate_connection_async().

Parameters

client

an NMClient

 

result

Returns

the new NMActiveConnection on success, NULL on failure, in which case error will be set.

                                gpointer user_data);

Adds a new connection using the given details (if any) as a template, automatically filling in missing settings with the capabilities of the given device and specific object. The new connection is then asynchronously activated as with nm_client_activate_connection_async(). Cannot be used for VPN connections at this time.

Note that the callback is invoked when NetworkManager has started activating the new connection, not when it finishes. You can used the returned NMActiveConnection object (in particular, “state”) to track the activation to its completion.

Parameters

client

a NMClient

 

partial

an NMConnection to add; the connection may be partially filled (or even NULL) and will be completed by NetworkManager using the given device and specific_object before being added.

[allow-none]

device

the NMDevice

 

specific_object

the object path of a connection-type-specific object this activation should use. This parameter is currently ignored for wired and mobile broadband connections, and the value of NULL should be used (ie, no specific object). For Wi-Fi or WiMAX connections, pass the object path of a NMAccessPoint or NMWimaxNsp owned by device , which you can get using nm_object_get_path(), and which will be used to complete the details of the newly added connection.

[allow-none]

cancellable

a GCancellable, or NULL

 

callback

callback to be called when the activation has started

 

user_data

caller-specific data passed to callback

                                GError **error);

Gets the result of a call to nm_client_add_and_activate_connection_async().

You can call nm_active_connection_get_connection() on the returned NMActiveConnection to find the path of the created NMConnection.

Parameters

result

the result passed to the GAsyncReadyCallback

 

error

location for a GError, or NULL

 

Returns

the new NMActiveConnection on success, NULL on failure, in which case error will be set.

                                gpointer user_data);

Adds a new connection using the given details (if any) as a template, automatically filling in missing settings with the capabilities of the given device and specific object. The new connection is then asynchronously activated as with nm_client_activate_connection_async(). Cannot be used for VPN connections at this time.

Note that the callback is invoked when NetworkManager has started activating the new connection, not when it finishes. You can used the returned NMActiveConnection object (in particular, “state”) to track the activation to its completion.

This is identitcal to nm_client_add_and_activate_connection_async() but takes a further options parameter. Currently the following options are supported by the daemon:

  • "persist": A string describing how the connection should be stored. The default is "disk", but it can be modified to "memory" (until the daemon quits) or "volatile" (will be deleted on disconnect).

  • "bind-activation": Bind the connection lifetime to something. The default is "none", meaning an explicit disconnect is needed. The value "dbus-client" means the connection will automatically be deactivated when the calling DBus client disappears from the system bus.

Parameters

client

a NMClient

 

partial

an NMConnection to add; the connection may be partially filled (or even NULL) and will be completed by NetworkManager using the given device and specific_object before being added.

[allow-none]

device

the NMDevice

 

specific_object

the object path of a connection-type-specific object this activation should use. This parameter is currently ignored for wired and mobile broadband connections, and the value of NULL should be used (ie, no specific object). For Wi-Fi or WiMAX connections, pass the object path of a NMAccessPoint or NMWimaxNsp owned by device , which you can get using nm_object_get_path(), and which will be used to complete the details of the newly added connection.

[allow-none]

options

a GVariant containing a dictionary with options, or NULL

 

cancellable

a GCancellable, or NULL

 

callback

callback to be called when the activation has started

 

user_data

caller-specific data passed to callback

If save_to_disk is TRUE, the connection is immediately written to disk; otherwise it is initially only stored in memory, but may be saved later by calling the connection's nm_remote_connection_commit_changes() method.

connection is untouched by this function and only serves as a template of the settings to add. The NMRemoteConnection object that represents what NetworkManager actually added is returned to callback when the addition operation is complete.

Note that the NMRemoteConnection returned in callback may not contain identical settings to connection as NetworkManager may perform automatic completion and/or normalization of connection properties.

Parameters

client

the NMClient

 

connection

the connection to add. Note that this object's settings will be added, not the object itself

 

save_to_disk

                            GError **error);

Requests that the remote settings service load or reload the given files, adding or updating the connections described within.

The changes to the indicated files will not yet be reflected in client 's connections array when the function returns.
