Hi, I have the NetworkManager Applet connecting my USB 3G modem to the internet. I was wondering where the text file with the connection setting would be located?

I was looking for something like this...

[Dialer pin]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Init1 = AT+CPIN=1234...................,.....!!here's your pin!!

[Dialer umts]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
ISDN = off
Modem Type = USB Modem
Baud = 460800
Init = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Dial Prefix =
Dial Attempts = 1
Dial Command = ATM1L3DT
Ask Password = off
Auto Reconnect = off
Abort on Busy = off
Carrier Check = on
Check Def Route = on
Abort on No Dialtone = on
Stupid Mode = off
Idle Seconds = 0
Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","drei.at".....!!here's your string!!
Username = drei.at...........................!!here's your Usern!!
Password = drei.at...........................!!here's your Passw!!
Phone = *99#.................................!!here's your Phone!!

I've tried looking /etc/ but couldn't find anything there.

Thanks in advance.

on my system:


ls /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections


sudo cat "/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/file name here"

the quotes are needed because that file will contain spaces.

two things may differ between mine and yours.

1) this is an internal wireless network card, not usb.
2) i have previously set my local router as "available to all users", which requires sudoer permissions.

it would stand to reason that a file similar to that would exist somewhere in /home if that network hadn't been set to 'available to all users', but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks for the reply. /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections is empty. I also had a look through some of the 'hidden' config files in the /home/user/ directory, but couldn't see anything that would indicate the file there either.
