nm_device_connection_valid (NMDevice *device,
                            NMConnection *connection);

Validates a given connection for a given NMDevice object and returns whether the connection may be activated with the device. For example if device is a Wi-Fi device that supports only WEP encryption, the connection will only be valid if it is a Wi-Fi connection which describes a WEP or open network, and will not be valid if it describes a WPA network, or if it is an Ethernet, Bluetooth, WWAN, etc connection that is incompatible with the device.

Parameters

device

an NMDevice to validate connection against

 

connection

an NMConnection to validate against device

 

Returns

TRUE if the connection may be activated with this device, FALSE if is incompatible with the device's capabilities and characteristics.


nm_device_connection_compatible ()

gboolean
nm_device_connection_compatible (NMDevice *device,
                                 NMConnection *connection,
                                 GError **error);

Validates a given connection for a given NMDevice object and returns whether the connection may be activated with the device. For example if device is a Wi-Fi device that supports only WEP encryption, the connection will only be valid if it is a Wi-Fi connection which describes a WEP or open network, and will not be valid if it describes a WPA network, or if it is an Ethernet, Bluetooth, WWAN, etc connection that is incompatible with the device.

This function does the same as nm_device_connection_valid(), i.e. checking compatibility of the given device and connection. But, in addition, it sets GError when FALSE is returned.

Parameters

device

an NMDevice to validate connection against

 

connection

an NMConnection to validate against device

 

error

return location for a GError, or NULL

 

Returns

TRUE if the connection may be activated with this device, FALSE if is incompatible with the device's capabilities and characteristics.
