One of the hackish way to handle 'coova with no wan' is -

- Write a script to check internet connection status {reachable,
- Run it continuously on same controller machine (on which coova is
- Use local dns server (for ex. dnsmasq).
- When internet is down, insert config in dnsmasq.conf which resolves any
DNS request to the ip of controller machine.(wild card resolv)
- On controller machine use [SERVER_NAME] from SERVER object to redirect
client to a page showing internet is unreacheble/no connectivity etc.
- When internet is up remove the wild card entry from dnsmasq.conf

(All the insert and remove config from dnsmasq.conf as well as internet
connection status script are automated.)

Hope this is helpful.
