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

+1 vote

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?
