You can disconnect/connect NICs (like unplugging the cable) but you can't selectively drop traffic.

Thanks a lot for your prompt response,
Is there any way to continuously inspect the traffic while it is being sent(online) not after reading the trace file.

thanks
Ahmed,

I'm not aware of any way to do so at the API level.

Asking the vbox developers directly on the dev mailing list for any non-documented features, but I wouldn't hold by breath.
