bisecting a circuit

when testing two identical connectors connected one against the other, I get from my network analyzer the S-parameters file concerning the cascade. How can I process in Genesys this S-parameter file in order to get the half circuit 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.
My input s-parameter is commonly in the form of a Touchstone file.
Any solutinon will be very welcome!
