1.5. Network Configuration Using NetworkManager's CLI (nmcli)

The NetworkManager command-line tool, nmcli, provides a command line way to configure networking by controlling NetworkManager. It is installed, along with NetworkManager, by default. If required, for details on how to verify that NetworkManager is running, see Section 1.3.1, “The NetworkManager Daemon”.
Examples of using the nmcli tool for each task will be included where possible, after explaining the use of graphical user interfaces and other command line methods. See Section 2.4, “Using the NetworkManager Command Line Tool, nmcli” for an introduction to nmcli.
