Adding in additional triggers for alt.comm.outbound

The idea behind this is to allow alt.comm.outbound to be triggered for other situations.  Such as TCP timeouts after a session had been initiated.

    The SSP is on the remote side.  Because they were having issues alt.comm.outbound was not triggered therefore we took a production outage.  This also would not pertain just to the remote node being a SSP.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed the request with my development team.  Given your use case we don't believe that an alt.comm.outbound change would provide the capability that you are seeking.  Since Sterling Secure Proxy is involved in this connection this capability would need to be handled in the SSP configuration instead of directly in C:D.  Because of that I will need to reject this request, but I would suggest opening an enhancement request with the SSP team to see if they might be able to meet your needs.  Thank you for taking the time to open this request and please don't hesitate to open a new one if you think of additional enhancements.
