I don't know about a specific example, but the sctp_darn utility will do it automatically if you just use two hosts with multiple ip addresses that are all reachable from one another. Just specify all the addresses you want to listen on with the -B option and all the addresses you want to connect to with the -c option.

I am trying to replicate heartbeat packets in a test env, because we believe one of our devices is having issues w/ these packets

We have enabled.

sysctl -w net.sctp.addip_enable=1
sysctl -w net.sctp.auth_enable=1 

Non-multihomed sctp traffic between an sctp_test client and server works.

But I cannot seem to figure out how to get sctp_test to generate heartbeat packets, which I believe multihoming is required.

How do I generate heartbeat packets and/or configure sctp_test to do multihoming?
