Curl_init() will return a resource or false if it fails, like it would
if no Internet connection were present.

Why can't you put the update on the same LAN server that the app
If that is not possible, what about using CURL, and update if it can
connect successfully, but don't if it cannot?
Since the LAN is remote (many hundreds of miles away) from the
source of the update, the only practical way to deliver an update
every month or week to multiple users is to make it available for
download from a central "update server".
I'm just trying to maximize efficiency by checking if an
internet connection exists, and abandoning further attempts to check
for update availability if it does not.
The idea to use CURL seems valid, but it pre-supposes that I
know the answer to my own question. To use your suggestion, I'd have
to have some mechanism to detect if it "can connect successfully".
I'm asking what that mechanism should be, and if the one I've
suggested is good, or flawed in some way.
