Unfortunately not. With the above function you can establish an internet
connection using the name of the saved settings as the first argument.
It is also possible to use any available connection by using the #define
OSSO_IAP_ANY "[ANY]" from osso-ic.h.

The settings are created either by selecting a WLAN network from the
'Select connection' dialog or the connectivity control panel applet.
Settings are stored under '/system/osso/connectivit/IAP/' in gconf. See
the end of the connectivity guide for gconf details.
