Static IP with connman

Just a quick note.  When googling how to set static IP with connman, many solutions incorrectly stated to edit the settings file under /var/lib/connman/wifi_<HASH>_managed_psk/ directly.

But instead, one should edit the file /var/lib/connman/service-name.config instead. e.g.

debian@beaglebone:/var/lib/connman$ sudo cat wifi.config
Type = wifi
Name = yyyyyyyyy
Security = wpa
Passphrase = xxxxxxxxxx

Also note that when the service-name.config file is updated, connman will automatically pick up the changes without restarting.

For more info and settings, do a "man connman-service.config".
