Spark: Check to see if server available before it starts


We will be deploying a Spark package with SSO enabled and configuring it to start after the user logs in.

We do not have our OpenFine server exposed to the Internet and do not plan on doing so.

This means that our remote users will need to VPN in to the company to connect to the OpenFire server.

Is there a way to configure Spark so that if it cannot talk to the OpenFire Server (i.e. the user is not connected to the VPN), it will just turn off and not tell the user it can’t connect? I want to minimize the intervention that Spark provides the End User.
