connman (connmand) for network

I was going to reply to the fine systemd-networkd tutorial above, but decided it was more akin to hijacking.  So I flesh it out a bit.  Not really a tutorial, but a template of investigation  and a plodders experience. 

Yeah,  more than a few leaving ceni after systemd-220 to go the systemd-networkd way.  I always will have a soft spot for anything ncurses based that works like ceni, but there seems to be a slow transition away from ifup.   

Mark ever the contrarian is utilizing connman (connmand).  A eth0 only for me on testing and sid (3 instances) was accomplished with apt-get install connman and a reboot.  For wifi I was flustered about how to get  my wpa's recognized at cli (I could get it via the cmst  (a qt gui for connman))  until I found that while

connmanctl agent on

did not work-- it would work in the connmanctl shell (i.e.

connmanctl  
>>agent on 

would work.  I am still looking at the vpn setup.  I just set up vpn via a terminal--usually tty2 or a root terminal with tmux and hide it away.

As it often is Arch wiki has info

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Connman

For the github to get more info on connman

Re: connman (connmand) for network

looks good.

fwiw, i've been reverting to networkmanager without a gui to get mobile broadband working reliably on my netbook.
i must say, networkmanager without all the gnome stuff is pretty cool.

you wouldn't know if connman supports mobile broadband / wwan? the archwiki says nothing about it.

Re: connman (connmand) for network

Intel and debian man pages availed me nothing.  Wikipedia gave me the right web page
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/network/ofo … t/tree/doc

Might be the best source of info, quite technical however.    ofono is on irc  irc://irc.freenode.net/#ofono

Connman does cell phones hrough oFono (and bluez).   Intel makes it out to be that they are the major driver of ofono.  But wikipedia is more balanced and provides better history.
  01.org/connman/documentation  writes in places about cellular capabilities, but never gets precise.

ethernet, using a built-in card, connected via host or client side USB
    WiFi using wpa_supplicant
    Celluar connectivity using oFono
    Bluetooth connectivity using Bluez

The above posted git.kernelorg doc section of connman has some talk about cellular, but again, my short skimming of sections gave me nothing precise

One website for oFono is also 01.org     https://01.org/ofono  It is pretty poor at getting info from.  Supposedly ofono is over 150.000 lines of c code written by intel.  The links don't link however. 

If you install ofono  there is no man page. The  manpage of ofonod (the daemon which hooks in via dbus probably) is quite sparse. and the info listed redirects you to the crap 01.org page.
