Add Alt Comm Outbound feature in C:D services on SI

This function exists in Unix and Windows, but does not apply in Sterling Integrator 5.2.6.3 and V6.

Please, add this function to C: D netmap to allow alternative IP addresses when the initial attempt to use this primary address fails.
This also prevents to build or modify a custom BP in order to verify the behavior of the connections of the C: D services.

How will this idea be used?

if Connect:Direct service cannot establish the connection using the primary address, then the alternate IP addresses/DNS name will be used instead the first.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest, feel free to re-enter the idea in 12 months to see if priorities have shifted. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.

    This should be a mandatory option - I wonder why this is still marked as "Needs review" since Feb 2019

    This has been an option on all other platforms and versions of Connect Direct for years - but has been missing on SI. This is supposed to be the premier B2B platform of choice ?  When is this option going to catchup  on SI ?
