QNAM will use up to 6 concurrent connections and automatically reuse
them, use pipelining etc. as needed. We don't provide low level access
to the scheduler etc. that performs this. Note that in your code above
you create a second network access manager which totally breaks Qt's
ability to schedule things nicely for you or to reuse the connection.
Instead you should make a single QNAM and keep reusing it.
