It would probably also be a good idea to share the "Wired connection 1"
config file.
I'm only guessing here, but I assume Yannick wants the connection
profile to be bound to a certain interface. Connection profiles can
apply to multiple  interfaces given the conditions in the connection
profile are met.

If you want to bind a connection profile to a certain hardware
interface, you can e.g. use mac-address=.
For a wifi interface, this would be:


for an ethernet connection:


See nm-settings-keyfile and nm-settings.

I'm undecided whether setting mac-address= by default is a good idea or not.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
