Differential Source Impedance Measurement with E5071C

I have a differential frequency swept source, covering 1 - 2000 MHz with a nominal 100 ohm source impedance.  Signal amplitude is one volt.  I would like to measure this device's source impedance, in a differential mode, using my Agilent E5071C VNA.

I plan to configure a pair of ports on the VNA as a differential port.  I then plan to sweep my differential source over its frequency range, while sweeping my VNA over the same range, but offset slightly in frequency from my differential source frequency. 

I also plan to further protect my VNA measurement circuitry by specifying a narrow IF bandwidth around the VNA's measurment frequency.

Has anyone made this measurement before?

Would you discuss same using a test diagram?
