    Access Point Name - Network Destinations (FP2)

    Hi,

    On Nokia 6220 Classic if I go to Settings | COnnection | Destinations | Internet - I added one access point. I can read the Connection Name using RCmManager::ECmName and GetStringAttributeL from RCmConnectionMethod.

    However, I also would like to read the "Access Point Name" - 3rd field. Which attribute do have to pass here as a parameter to GetStringAttributeL?

    BR,

    Re: Access Point Name - Network Destinations (FP2)

    Hi,

    I solved the problem partially - I can get the access point name using:

    HBufC* name = connectionMethod.GetStringAttributeL( CMManager::EPacketDataAPName );

    but EPacketDataAPName is only a valid attribute if the connectionMethod has a GPRS bearer type (I presume). Getting the bearer type is done using:

    TInt bearerType = connectionMethod.GetIntAttributeL( CMManager::ECmBearerType );

    Now only question is: what are the possible return types for bearerType?

    BR,

    Re: Access Point Name - Network Destinations (MR)

    Hi,

    I accomplished to get my solution working on 6220 Classic (FP2). The bearer type (technology) which is returned is KUidPacketDataBearerType.

    Now I would like to have the same functionality running on N73 (MR). However, the CM Manager API has been introduced in FP2. Which APIs to use to access the access point name in MR phones?

    On the phone (N73) you select Tools | Settings | Connection | Access Points. Select one of them. You get a screen with "Connection name", "Data bearer" and "Access point name".

    BR,

    You can get the IAP Id from RConnection::GetIntSetting+"IAP\\Id", then find out the name based on the id, using CApUtils, or CommDb/CommsDat directly.
