Problem & Solution
[PMU Connection Tester 4.6+] Stuck At "Awaiting Configuration Frame" using IEEE Std C37.118.2-2011 standard
When using PMU Connection Tester version 4.6 or later along with the configuration IEEE Std C37.118.2-2011 standard upon connection to the C37.118 Slave on the OPAL-RT Simulation, it hangs waiting for a Configuration Frame.
Starting version 4.6 the tool PMU Connection Tester added these new features (support of CFG-3 configuration frame) :

https://github.com/GridProtectionAlliance/gsf/wiki/GSF-v2.3.435-Release-Notes (Specific v4.6 release notes)
OPAL-RT's C37.118 Slave does not support Configuration Frame 3 which is now used by default on PMU Connection Tester.
User has to select the Command "Send Config Frame 2" when initiating the connection to start receiving the data.
