functionality. This allows NetworkManager to detect whether or not the system
can actually access the internet or whether it is behind a captive portal.

.B uri=\fI<uri>\fP
The URI of a web page to periodically request when connectivity is being checked.
This page should return the header "X-NetworkManager-Status" with a value of
"online". Alternatively, it's body content should be set to "NetworkManager
is online". The body content check can be controlled by the \fIresponse\fP
option. If this option is blank or missing, connectivity checking is disabled.

set to 0 connectivity checking is disabled. If missing, the default is 300
seconds.
