NAME

netctl-auto - Control automatic selection of wireless netctl profiles

SYNOPSIS

netctl-auto {COMMAND} ...
 
netctl-auto [--help | --version]

DESCRIPTION

netctl-auto may be used to control the automatic network profile selection offered by the netctl-auto@.service file. See netctl.special(7) for details about the service file.

OPTIONS

The following commands are understood:
list
List all profiles which are currently available for automatic selection. Active profiles will be marked with a ‘*’, disabled profiles will be marked with a ‘!’.
switch-to [PROFILE]
Switch to the network profile specified on the command line. The specified profile will be enabled if necessary, the state of all other profiles is not changed. This command does not force netctl-auto to use the specified profile. If a disconnect occurs, netctl-auto may select an alternative profile.
is-active [PROFILE]
Check whether the network profile specified on the command line is active. Prints the current state.
enable [PROFILE]
Enable a previously disabled network profile for automatic selection. Every time the netctl-auto service is started, all available profiles are enabled by default.
disable [PROFILE]
Disable the specified profile for automatic selection. This will only take effect until the netctl-auto service is stopped. To permanently exclude a profile from automatic selection, use the ExcludeAuto=yes option in the profile.
enable-all
Enable all profiles for automatic selection.
disable-all
Disable all profiles for automatic selection.
is-enabled [PROFILE]
Check whether the specified profile is enabled for the netctl-auto service that is currently running. Prints the current enable status.
start [INTERFACE]
Start automatic profile selection on the specified interface.
 
This command should not be invoked directly, use the following command instead:
 
    systemctl start netctl-auto@<interface>
stop [INTERFACE]
Stop automatic profile selection on the specified interface. This will disconnect the currently active profile on the interface.
 
This command should not be invoked directly, use the following command instead:
 
    systemctl stop netctl-auto@<interface>

EXIT STATUS

On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.

ENVIRONMENT
