Simulating network hang

Hi Oracle-L,

I'm trying to simulate a situation (for testing) where any attempt to make tcp connection to a machine hangs.
For example, connections using ssh or sqlplus hangs. No error message (as seen when ssh server or listenere are down), just no reply.

Any advice on how to create this state on purpose? The OS is Linux RH3 and RH4.

Thanks in advance,
Chen Shapira
