Advanced Port Mapping Settings Dialog Box

Enables you to set the advanced port mapping settings. For more information, see Port Mapping Auto Detection.

To access
Record > Recording Options > Network > Mapping and Filtering. Click Options in the Port Mapping section.
Important information
This dialog box is available only for specific protocols. For a complete list of protocols and their associated nodes, see Protocol Compatibility Table.

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element
Enable auto SSL detection
Automatically detects SSL communication. Note that this applies only to port mappings that were defined as auto in the Connection type box, or not defined at all. If a server, port, or server:port combination was defined as either Plain or SSL, then auto SSL detection does not apply.
SSL Version: Specify the version that you want to detect.

SSL Ciphers: Specify the cipher to detect:

  • To enable OpenSSL to choose the default cipher automatically, select (Default OpenSSL Ciphers) in the dropdown list .
  • To define your own cipher and add it to the dropdown list, select (New SSL Cipher) and type in the cipher string.
    To remove a user-defined cipher, select the cipher in the list and click the button.

For more information on OpenSSL cipher strings, refer to the Cipher Strings section in

Enable auto detection of SOCKET based communication
Automatically detects the type of communication. If required, raise the maximum number of transitions, one at a time until VuGen succeeds in detecting the protocol. You can also gradually increase the maximum buffer size by 1024 bytes (1 KB) at a time until VuGen succeeds in detecting the protocol. This allows VuGen to review a larger amount of data in order to find a signature.
Log Level
Sets the logging level for the automatic socket detection.
