Sniphere the sniffer.

SecureSphere has on offer free IT security software that includes Sniphere, the best data packet sniffer I’ve ever tried. Sniphere starts by simply capturing data packets that are sent and received by your computer and then displays them without excessively cluttering up your screen. Afterwards you can have it decode the packets to a more readable format with a simple click of the button. It has a neat feature where it decodes all the packets originating from the same TCP source and displays them in the same window. You can easily switch to other TCP sources as well. Add a very cool transparency mode and its ability to export its findings to an XML file and you have a great network tool at your disposal.
Sniphere needs the WinPcap library to run, so be sure to have that installed first.
