Creating profile

Profile in CManager is a configuration file that has information about wifi connection like SSID, type of connection (Open/WPA), and passphrase if the connection is WPA type. To create a profile, simply input value to available option (name, ssid, type, passphrase) using set name [value], set ssid [value], set type [value], set passphrase [value]. show options to see available options. For Open type connection, you just need to input name, ssid, and type, no need to supply passphrase information.

After all informations needed to create a profile have been provided, simply save profile and your profile will be saved. To see all information about all profiles that have been saved, type show profile.

Connecting to a network

To connecting CManager to a network use a specified profile name, type connect [profile]. To disconnect it, simply type CTRL+C.
