Configure the use of WebRTC via connection file (.nxs)

A new key in the connection file (.nxs) should allow to specify if the web connection will have to use WebRTC (if enabled) or not. Administrators could provide two different connections files, e.g. 'classic.nxs' and 'webrtc.nxs', so that users can switch to any of them according to their needs.

The new key, by default empty, is:

<option key="Web session method" value="" />

When NoMachine is configured to support both webrtc and classic sessions, i.e. the following key is set in the server.cfg file:

AcceptedWebMethods classic,webrtc

the "Web session method" key can be set in the .nxs file to force using only (i) webrtc or (ii) classic, i.e.:

(i) <option key="Web session method" value="webrtc" />

or:

(ii) <option key="Web session method" value="classic" />

Note that with configuration (i) , if the browser doesn't support it webrtc, it will be not possible to start the session because NoMachine will not fall back automatically to the classic method.
