How to stop SYN ACK retransmission

asked 2017-11-28 06:03:43 +0000

I want the server to stop retransmission of the SYN-ACK to test SLOW Connection.

I want SYN, SYN-ACK, ACK ----- timeout ---- FIN ACK, ACK (client, server, client ----- timeout ---- server, client)

I wrote a script, to open a socket connection over HTTP, but server sends SYN-ACK and client ACKs that during the timeout period where I want to sit both of them silent.

Put a firewall in between the client and server and drop the packets you dont want the remote host to see. Or you could customize a tcp/ip stack to not send packets, but this could be a lot more work.
