agree with David, scapy 2.3.1 doesn't have SCTP, but DTS take it as a basic
protocol. I have a workaround you may try:

1, download sctp from
https://github.com/secdev/scapy/blob/master/scapy/layers/sctp.py to
2, apply the following patch:
(m.endswith('.py') and not m.startswith('__'))]

Now DTS will import SCTP from local module: dts/dep/scapy_modules/sctp.py
