EyeSpy

In the full version, it shows a great deal of information about each resource you're contacting, including port numbers, city and country, how much data you're sharing with it, and so on. (This demo version gives you somewhat less information, and doesn't include, for example, ISP/Organizational information or details about application responsible for the traffic.) And if you want to get super-techie, you can get more information as well, and even export the data to a spreadsheet. But what can you do with that data--how can you understand what it means? The program offers no help at all.

In short, unless you're exceedingly experienced with Internet security, you won't find it worthwhile to download EyeSpy Internet Monitor.
