Maximum safe input level for N1996A

Does someone know what is the N1996A maximum safe input level when the SA works in Two-Port Insertion Loss mode?

The specification only says the maximum safe input level is +33 dBm when the N19996A is in Spectrum Analyzer mode and the input attenuator is set to 19 dB or greater. However, when in Two-Port Insertion Loss mode, the input attenuator can't be set by the operator and the operating manual says nothing about what is the attenuation effectively being used in this mode.

Thanks in advance.
