HI,

I want to simulate the following situation.

My Application sends a packet, but the ip packet should be dropped by the ip layer.
Is there any way on Linux using ifconfig command or any other to drop a packet intentioanlly.

A firewall (in Linux -- netfilter) is good at dropping packets.

Why do you want to do this? I only ask in case there might be a simpler way to achieve your goal.
For instance, if you are developing a user-level program which does its own session control over UDP, you could use the gdb debugger to simulate packet loss.

use firewall(iptables)
set the iptables default policy as drop or reject
another query is tell me which exact application packet to drop?
