  • In the Frame screen, go to Add Header(s)… and select TCP.  You can find it under Category: IP.
  • You can configure the TCP header values to match your test case.
  • If you start traffic, the packets will include the TCP information you configured before.  Please refer to the snapshot below.
Follow the steps below to include these stream blocks in the RFC2544 traffic.
  • When you get to the Configure Traffic window of the RFC2544 wizard, select the Use existing stream blocks or create new stream blocks for the test option and enable the Active option for both stream blocks.
