But when same command execute within testcase it stuck there.

Probably, your test interface is the same interface the management link 
is working on, i.e. eth0 is used to connect two machines over ssh. Try 
to set RHOST to the name or IP address that is not routed through eth0 
or use another test interface to perform the test. This is a requirement 
for network/stress group.

You can also remove "tst_restore_ipaddr()" from broken_*lib.sh scripts, 
if eth0 has already been configured with IPs.

I'm going to send a patch to remove this code from them, because most 
network tests expect IP addresses have already been set, and some of  
network/stress tests, broken_ip in particular, don't really need to 
restore the addresses.
