NetworkManager Questions

Postby kissellj » 2017/11/14 22:23:38

Is NetworkManager a tool or application that is used to start/stop just network applications (ftp, tcpip, etc.) in CentOS 7? What are the commands to list what is running in NetworkManager and start/stop applications? Does a start/stop need to be performed before using a yum upgrade or yum install? Assuming same would be true with rpm? Thank you.

No. It manages the network, not any applications.

Thank you for the reply. Thinking about the name should have given me the clue. Do you know some of the commands to start/stop the NetworkManager or list what is running?

You can use 'nmtui' or 'nmcli' to lisr,add,remove or modify your connections.

And 'systemctl' to list,start,stop,etc running services, like NetworkManager.service.

[root@localhost network-scripts]# nmcli dev
DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION
virbr0 bridge connected virbr0
enp0s31f6 ethernet connected enp0s31f6
lo loopback unmanaged --
virbr0-nic tun unmanaged --
wlp0s20f0u2 wifi unmanaged --

nmcli command says wifi is unmanaged and reports device as wlp0s20f0u2. How do I get it to run my scripts in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts that I created for my wifi?

Reference documentation is in:
https://access.redhat.com/documentation ... networking

You did list devices. You want to adjust connections. What do you have?

Code: Select all

nmcli con show
