(Virtualbox OS: Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa)
I am trying to disable the network-connectivity-check on Linux Mint.
This website shows how to disable it in the GUI for Ubuntu 17.10.
Unfortunately in Mint the path
Settings > Privacy > Turn off "network connectivity checking"
does not exist.
According to this post the GUI just changes a line entry in the file
/var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager-intern.conf to false:
cat I saw that these two lines didn't even exist, therefore I inserted them and tried the following procedure again:
1. network-tray-icon > Wired_connection_1 > Disconnect 2. wireshark start packet capturing for interface "enp0s3" 3. network-tray-icon > Wired_connection_1 > Connect 4. wireshark stop packet capturing
By applying the display-filter
(dns.qry.name == "connectivity-check.ubuntu.com"), inside wireshark, there are exactly 100 DNS-queries and their corresponding responses.
So the insertion of those two lines didn't work.
I also did overwrite the following file as described here:
sudo touch /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/20-connectivity-ubuntu.conf
Still exact 100 DNS-messages.
How do I disable the network-connectivity-check on Linux Mint, by using the terminal?
