RE: Change IP address with libnm

Hi Thomas.

Thank you for your help. I am new using this library so, your help is much appreciated.
That's really what I was looking for because, right now, I am simply calling system("nmcli con mod Wired\ 
connection\ 1 ...") in my test application to modify settings and I wanted to replace that part.
I will keep you informed.

Thanks again,
António Pontinha Mendes

add-connection adds a new profile.
Basically, what `nmcli connection add ...` does.

The example you refer to is about usage of libnm. So, the corresponding
API is nm_remote_connection_update2() ([1]). This maps to the D-Bus
call Update2 ([2]). This is what `nmcli connection modify ...` does.


As always, connection profiles in NetworkManager are really just a bunch of nested
dictionaries, that is the plain settings. There is no further logic involved, just
create a suitable profile. If you use libnm, you probably create the profile using the
NMConnection and NMSetting types. These represent the nested dictionaries.

After you modify a profile, you usually need to activate it so that your actual networking
configuration (`nmcli device`, `ip link`) changes.
