This is a guide to nmtui for CentOS 7 (RHEL 7)
nmtui stands for: Network Manager Text User Interface and it is used for controlling NetworkManager
These are the commands:
nmtui [ edit | connect | hostname ] [ … ]
When you type the command nmtui you will be asked what you want to do: Edit A connection, Activate a connection or Set system name
nmtui-edit [ connection-id | connection-name ]

nmtui is a curses‐based TUI application for interacting with NetworkManager.
When starting nmtui, the user is prompted to choose the activity to perform unless it was specified as the first argument.
The supported activities are:
— edit: show a connection editor that supports adding, modifying, viewing and deleting connections. It provides similar functionality as nm-connection-editor.
— connect: show a list of available connections, with the option to activate or deactivate them. It provides similar functionality as nm-applet.
— hostname: set the system hostname.
Corresponding to above activities, nmtui also comes with binaries named nmtui-edit, nmtui-connect, and nmtui-hostname to skip the selection of the activities.
