Business Central - check internet connection

Hi,
Is there any way to check if the Business Central OnPrem has access to the internet? Some method like IsNetworkAvailable():Boolean ?

    You could do at HTTP GET on a public site like https://google.dk,
    if you get a 200 OK then you are able to connect to other sites.
    For help, do not use PM, use forum instead, perhaps other people have the same question, or better answers.

    That was my idea as well to ping some public domain, but I was wondering if there is a better sollution, like a system codeunit with this kind of functionality.
    Won't it work incorrectly if http request is blocked for our extension?

    Yes it will, but you could add a few lines of code to check that with the HTTPResponseMesage.IsBlockedByEnvironment()
    trigger OnRun()
        var
            Client : HttpClient;
            Response : HttpResponseMessage;
        begin
            if Response.IsBlockedByEnvironment() then
                Error('Please give access on extension management');
        end;
