No. Wireshark is a monitoring tool and does not affect the data flows (except indirectly due to changing interface settings which is useless for your case).

I would recommend to use netfilter (iptables) for the purpose - if it cannot be used on the client or server machine directly, use a linux box as an intermediate router and implement the "network spoiler" there.

Hi @AMitiev,

If you are using Windows, you can use Npcap to implement a firewall. It supports the PASS, DROP and MODIFY operation. You need to parse the packet contents by yourself to determine how to handle the packet.

See the description on the release of Npcap 0.05 R11 for usage:

You can use the latest normal (non -wifi, the latest is 0.05 R14) version Npcap at:
