    Wireshark - packet capturing if you want to go in depth.
    You might be able to use something like Fiddler2 to check what domains are being connected to as well.

    Does this also show what port a software is using?

    Wireshark for passive sniffing of network packet.
    WPE (winsock packet editor) for active modification of network packet (difficult to use).
    Webscarab for http-based traffic that can be sent via a web proxy.

    Actually, an easier way might be to find the "right" binary file and modify it.
