       Connmanctl  is  a  Connman  command  line interface which can be run in two modes: a plain
       synchronous command input, and an asynchronous  interactive  shell.   To  run  a  specific
       command  the user may enter connmanctl command [options] or just connmanctl, in the latter
       case an interactive shell will start.

       Connmanctl can handle most network connections. It  can  be  used  to  enable/disable  any
       technology   that   exists   on   the  system,  display  a  list  of  services  available,
       connect/disconnect networks, show properties of the  system,  the  technologies,  and  any
       individual  service,  and  configure  all  of  the  properties. It is also able to monitor
       changes in the properties of the services, technologies, and the system.

       In the interactive shell, all of the same commands can be used. It provides quicker  usage
       when  needing  to  use  connmanctl  more extensively. In addition, connecting to protected
       wireless access points for the first time requires interactive shell.


       help   Shows the abbreviated help menu in the terminal.

       state  Shows the system properties. Includes the online state of the system, offline mode,
              and session mode.

              Shows  a  list of all technology types existing on the system and their properties.
              See the properties section of the Technology API for explanations of each property.

       enable technology
              Enables the given technology type (e.g. ethernet, wifi, 3g, etc.)  Turns  power  on
              to  the  technology, but doesn't connect unless there is a service with autoconnect
              set to True.

       disable technology
              Disables the  given  technology  type.  Turns  power  off  to  the  technology  and
              disconnects if it is already connected.

       enable offline
              Enables  offline  mode.  Disconnects  and powers down all technologies system-wide,
              however each technology can be powered back on individually.

       disable offline
              Disables offline  mode.  Technologies  are  powered  back  on  according  to  their
              individual policies.

       tether technology on | off
              Enable  or  disable tethering on technology. Ethernet cannot be tethered by default
              since tethering it usually breaks local networks. See connman.conf(5) for enabling.

       tether wifi on | off ssid passphrase
              Enable or disable wireless tethering, as well set the SSID and passphrase.

              Shows a list of all available services. This includes the nearby wifi networks, the
              wired  ethernet  connections,  bluetooth devices, etc.  An asterisk in front of the
              service indicates that the service has been connected before.

       services service
              Shows a list of all properties for that  service.   Only  the  service  path  (e.g.
              wifi_6834534139723_managed_none) is accepted as a parameter.

       scan technology
              Scans for new services on the given technology.

       connect service
              Connects  to the given service. Some services need a so-called provisioning file in
              order to connect to them, see connman-service.config(5).

       disconnect service
              Disconnects from the given service.

       move-before service target-service
              Prefer connecting to service over target-service.

       move-after service target-service
              Prefer connecting to target-service over service.

       config service option arg...
              Configures a writable property of the given service to the value(s)  entered  after
              option. See the Config Options subsection for details.

       monitor target
              Listens  for  and  displays  DBus signals sent by Connman. If a currently monitored
              property changes, the changes will be shown. If no target is specified, all changes
              will be shown. See the Monitor Options subsection for a summary of parameters.

              Shows a list of all available vpn connections.

       vpnconnections connection
              Shows the current properties of connection.

   Commands only available in interactive mode:
       agent on | off
              Enable   or  disable  the  wireless  agent,  used  for  entering  wireless  network
              passphrases. See the EXAMPLE section of this man page for an example of  connecting
              to a wireless access point.

       vpnagent on | off
              Enable or disable the vpn agent, used for entering vpn credentials.

   Config Options:
       autoconnect on | off
              Sets the autoconnect property of the service.

       ipv4 off | dhcp | manual address netmask gateway
              Configures  the  IPv4  settings  for  the service. The argument off means that IPv4
              won't be used, dhcp means that dhcp will be used to get  the  settings  and  manual
              means that the given arguments will be used as IPv4 settings.  address, netmask and
              gateway must be valid IPv4 addresses. See the EXAMPLE section of this man page  for

       ipv6 off | auto | manual address prefixlength gateway
              Configures  the  IPv6  settings  for  the service. The argument off means that IPv6
              won't be used, auto means that settings will be asked from the network  and  manual
              means  that the given arguments will be used as IPv6 settings.  address and gateway
              must be valid IPv6 addresses. prefixlength is the length of the prefix in bits. See
              the EXAMPLE section of this man page for details.

       nameservers dns [...]
              Set the list of nameservers, separated by spaces.

       proxy direct | auto URL | manual server[...] [--excludes server[...]]
              Configures  the  proxy settings for the service. direct means that no proxy will be
              used. If using auto without a parameter, the network will be asked  for  the  proxy
              settings. Otherwise, use URL as an proxy autoconfiguration URL. When set to manual,
              the first list of servers is used as proxy servers, and the traffic to  the  second
              list  of  servers  are  excluded  from  the  proxy. The list of excluded servers is
              optional. See the EXAMPLE section of this man page for details.
