Re: Modem gsm device connection fails, gsm setting not found.


the problem is solved now.

I was not properly updating the settings from remote. Now I do it with nm_connection_replace_settings_from_connection() and nm_remote_connection_commit_changes_async().

How can I assign a connection to a device? Why does network manager not find the appropriate connection? I suspect I could be messing something up with the settings.

I am using Network Manager version 1.6.2-3 and Modem Manager 1.6.4-1.

I set up the connections manually and they appear in nmcli connections list. For modem GSM devices I have created the following connection:                          ModemGSM

The connected device is a PHS8 modem and has the following properties:

GENERAL.DEVICE:                         cdc-wdm0
GENERAL.TYPE:                           gsm

GENERAL.MTU:                            0

In modem manager I can see that the modem is registered and the signal quality is periodically checked:

ModemManager[2508]: <debug> [1513005666.467413] [mm-broadband-modem.c:9290] enabling_step(): Modem has extended signal reporting capabilities, enabling the Signal interface...

If I try to connect the device over nmcli I get the following error:

nmcli d connect cdc-wdm0
Error: Failed to add/activate new connection: gsm: GSM mobile broadband connection requires a 'gsm' setting

If I try to stablish the connection on this device, I get the following error:

nmcli c up ModemGSM ifname cdc-wdm0
Error: Connection activation failed: Connection 'ModemGSM' is not available on the device cdc-wdm0 at this time.
