The small code snippet below shows how to stop an active GPRS connection manually. This is a very useful code snippet when we are developing applications related to networking in Category:PySymbian. The access point (access_point) object of the socket module mainly serves three purposes:

  • We can stop or disconnect manually an active GPRS connection. The Code for this function is given below:

Code Snippet

#imports the Module (Python 1.4.5)
import socket
from appuifw import *
def sel_access_point():
""" Select and return the access point or None (error)

aps = socket.access_points()
if not aps:
note(u"No access points available","error")
return None
ap_labels = map(lambda x: x['name'], aps)
item = popup_menu(ap_labels,u"Access points:")
if item is None:
return None
apo = socket.access_point(aps[item]['iapid'])
return apo
ap = sel_access_point()
if ap:
ap.start() # start an GPRS connection
print "IP:", ap.ip()
ap.stop() # stops an GPRS connection
