Description Fabian Deutsch 2012-10-22 11:51:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Summary says it all.
It is quite common to need the string repr. of a IPv4 or v6 address, but the current NMClient API (via gobject introspection) does no't provide a direct way to retrieve those strings, they have to be converted manually.

I'd love to see these convenience functions in the IPv4/IPv6Address classes.
Comment 1 Fabian Deutsch 2012-10-22 13:14:46 EDT
Maybe as a utility function
Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2015-08-18 10:56:47 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Dan Winship 2015-08-18 11:25:21 EDT
The new "libnm" in NetworkManager 1.0 (available in F22 and later) represents IP addresses as strings in all places in its API:

>>> from gi.repository import NM
>>> client = NM.Client.new()
>>> client.get_devices()[0].get_ip4_config().get_addresses()[0].get_address()
