Tethering involves connecting one network connection to another. In the QWF solution, the Tether Manager (tetherman) service allows you to tether the target board's Wi-Fi Access Point to either the Ethernet or the cellular connection, which acts as the internet backhaul. With this setup, client devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets can connect to the QNX target through Wi-Fi and have their data requests routed through the target's Ethernet or cellular hardware to access the internet. An active link between two network connections is called a tethering session.

For information about the commands that you can send to tetherman service, the tethering session details published by the service, and how to read state changes related to tethering sessions, see the relevant PPS object descriptions:
