Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update

If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:
or if you use

First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.
There are several ways to install fragtest on Fedora 34. You can use (links are clickable):
In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.
First, update dnf packages database with
dnf by running the next command:
sudo dnf makecache --refresh
After updating database,
You can install fragtest using
dnf by running the
sudo dnf -y install fragroute
Because fragtest is available in Fedora 34’s default
it is possible to install it from these repositories using the
To begin, update local packages database with
yum using the following command.
sudo yum makecache --refresh
Now can install fragtest package on your server/computer by running the following command:

To update all the packages available on the system:
If you want to update a specific package like fragtest in this example you should use the following command:
yum update fragroute
To downgrade a package to an earlier version:
yum downgrade fragroute
When you run the
dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated.
However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as
the argument to the dnf update command.
dnf update fragroute
To uninstall only the
fragtest package you can execute
sudo dnf remove fragroute
fragroute intercepts, modifies, and rewrites egress traffic destined for a specified host, implementing most of the attacks described in the Secure Networks "Insertion, Evasion, and Denial of Service: Eluding Network Intrusion Detection" paper of January 1998. It features a simple ruleset language to delay, duplicate, drop, fragment, overlap, print, reorder, segment, source-route, or otherwise monkey with all outbound packets destined for a target host, with minimal support for randomized or probabilistic behaviour. This tool was written in good faith to aid in the testing of network intrusion detection systems, firewalls, and basic TCP/IP stack behaviour. Please do not abuse this software.
