bisecting a measurement (E5071C)

on network analyzer E5071C,

when testing two identical connectors connected one against the other, I get the measurement of the cascade; is there a way to process the S-parameter file in order to get the half circuit measurement (and S-parameters), hence having one connector's characterization? This would be very useful since I don't have any other way to test directly the connectors (i.e. specific adaptors having a sufficient precision level). I understand that this works in the assumption of two identical connectors, which is actually the case; I know that from a mathematical point of view the S-parameter matrix should be transformed in a T-matrix, squared, and then back again to the S-parameter matrix.

Any solutions will be very welcome!
