How can I ensure that my connection via SSL or TLS is secure without actually sniffing the packets coming down the wire? If I set SSL.Protocol=0 (autonegotiate), connect, then try and check SSL.Protocol, it still comes back as 0. Is there another way to expose the connection protocol and if the connection is, in fact, encrypted?

Thanks in advance! :)

Even if autonegotiation is used, the established connection will still be secured at least with SSL layer. If TLS/SSL is not available at all and secure connection could not be made, the component will return error.
Thus, it's not required to check .Protocol property or anything else to make sure the connection is secure. Both SSL and TLS protocols provide sufficient level of security. Although TLS is a bit more secure than SSL, the difference is not as noticeable to take it into account.
