Description Vladimir Benes 2010-07-15 08:21:41 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.execute nmcli con up id $your_network_profile --timeout 10 in console 

Actual results:
after timeuot expires connecting continues

Expected results:
if the timeout expires and error is shown you shouldn't have been connected to the desired network
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2010-07-15 11:25:59 EDT
Not exactly; the timeout just makes the client block until either (a) an error occurs, (b) the timeout is reached, or (c) the connection is successfully brought up.  It won't tell NM to *stop* connecting when the timeout is reached; it just makes nmcli exit instead of blocking for a long time.  --timeout allows callers of nmcli to bound their runtime in cases where NM may take a long time to acquire an IP address, like marginal wifi connections with bad DHCP servers where connections could take up to a minute or more.
