Can CA Netmaster break out the ConnectDirect Secure+ TLS exchange like it does for HTTP(S)?
Smartrace will recognise SSL/TLS protocols and provide some formatting such as for CLIENT HELLO etc. See example below. I hope this answers your question.

I know it can do this for HTTPS and TN3270, but I don't see where It can do this for Connect:Direct FMH68 exchanges. That is a different protocol.
I didn't find much in the way of documentation. The best I could find was this explanation of the flows. See IBM URL below. It suggests that the FMH68 is a 'bind' of some sort.
Have you ever wondered what those FMH messages mean in your Stats? (CSE-Sterling Managed File Transfer)
Just to clarify, there is no support for this IBM proprietary protocol. You can use the Ideas forum to suggest a product enhancement.
Oh maybe I posted this in the wrong place, that was my intention. I know that the Netmaster file transfer product can monitor C:D transmissions so maybe CA has that code handy.

The NetMaster for File Transfer product does not have the capabilities to dissect and format the data flows for the various file transfer products it supports. It's primary purpose is to make sure file transfers start, stop on time, catch errors and other things like file transfer sizes. It never actually sees the data flowing over the wire.
