I make an installation of the Tigase Server in the local network (no access to the Internet), and try to connect to the web UI (http://:8080/ui/). Everything working, but before access page appears the UI (for a minute) shows blank page with message "Connecting to the".
So, the question is: how to prevent the server from making connections to the external resources (inaccessible from the intranet)?

Which browser do you use?
Could you try to grab the recording of it? Or a screenshot?
Could you try to provide source of the loaded page (showing the message)?
Could you provide log from developer console of the requests that your browser tries to make?

We don't ship any code that relies on Google services. Just to make sure I checked the sources of web AdminUI and there is no mention of

Sorry, the thing I should correct: it is not about Admin UI, it is about built in Web Client.
I used both Mozilla Firefox 56.0.2 (x32) and Google Chrome 72.0.3626.119 (x64), behavior are the same except Google does not show address(pic1.png, pic2.png).
Unfortunately I have no experience how to debug JS code; I simple pause it in debugger window in Firefox, and check the page's source code (pic3.png, pic4.png). Maybe it will be helpful for You?
