Is there a way that softer on the client device can determine if the mender-client has successfully connected to the server. The idea is that this information can be presented to a user of the device
Currently there is no such thing available, but we are looking into adding it, thanks for the suggestion! As a workaround right now, you can check if there is an open connection like this
netstat -anp | grep 'ESTABLISHED.*/mender[ ]*$'
Hope this helps!
