Trying to select IP version on connect and question of language bindings for libmbim

I guess with von Neumann-logic there is a tristate-based truth.

I hope this give you the guts to figure out the basics yourself.

Seriously; if and only if you had read the specification you would find out that MBIM does NOT give you an IP-configuration based on DHCP per specification (if you got it by DHCP the vendor was very generous and implemented a DHCP-server).

Implement your own bindings… or ask someone at Airtel or whatever company you are doing this work for to do it. I hate when people ask about help for their office work and not trying their best or asking the best people to try doing it. There does exist commercial solutions for that, use them.

So better, for all of us, you tell your boss to buy a commercial solution. Goes without saying.

Using it, I was able to establish a connection, but I had no IP address information since dhclient doesn't work on the modem. So, I upgraded to 1.12 and applied the patch from this mailing list as a new custom package. After that point, I was able to connect, but I appeared to be unable to be able to connect in such a way that I could force the bearer to be IPv4, IPv6, or IPv4+IPv6. Am I missing something that would make this possible?
