Introduction

I provide here an example setup which are more complicated than your setup probably will be.

Use case

I have 1 laptop and 2 freerunners. Whenever I plug my freerunner, I want my laptop recognize which freerunner was plugged in and act accordingly. Also automagically set up the networking for me.

Prerequisites

You need a linux/unix computer with working NetworkManager setup. I have successfully use this method more than a month now, with Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty), I will test it also on Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid), and report back here.

The NetworkManager on jaunty is:

ii  network-manager                            0.7.1~rc4-0ubuntu1 
ii  network-manager-gnome                      0.7.1~rc4.1-0ubuntu1
