A customer's SFTP protocols are changing and want to know the following information so they can plan ahead if the Automic RA FTP agent will still function correctly under the new protocols.
1. What is cipher? 
2. What is SSH mac? 
3. How can they find information on what cipher and SSH mac are being used in the RA FTP CONN object?
