This manual is the reference documentation for NetworkManager, the standard Linux network management service. It is intended for system administrators and integrators who need to understand the capabilities of NetworkManager, its configuration options, command line tools and the D-Bus API for programmatic control of the service.
The end users NetworkManager should instead refer to respective documentation of their desktop environment of choice.
The application developers who prefer not to use the D-Bus API directly can use the libnm library shipped with NetworkManager or its bindings to a higher level language such as Python, Ruby or Vala via GObject introspection.
