Getting properties of DBus objects using org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get

Hello *,

I've got a problem while trying to issue the following DBus command:

dbus-send --system --print-reply \
                  --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager \
                  /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/eth1 \
                  org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get \
                      string:'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Device' \

"Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "Get" with
signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't exist"

That is what DBus tells me. The "Udi"-property from
"org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Device" should exist according to the
NetworkManager docs.

What is the problem here? Is this a DBus issue or more likely a
NetworkManager issue?

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,
