    What are dependencies and relations between device, interface and connection in nmcli cmdline utility under linux?

    The below questions are asked in context of nmcli and networking in linux:

    Which can be only in 1:1 relation and which can be in 1:many relation ?

    In case of 1:many, can many be active at the same time ?

    Is network card (nic) the same as device ?

    Is ip address eg 10.0.0.1 an instance of interface or connection ?

    Can one network card have multiple ip addresses active at the same time ?

    Can multiple network cards (in the same server) share the same ip address, is it network teaming ?
