Need a program to let me view socket connection data

Recommended Posts

I two programs on my computer that communicate to each other through sockets. Does anyone know of a way to view the data they are sending back and forth?

For Windows, I'd simply write a little proxy server, then fix the application endpoints as needed. The entire server was some 200 lines of Java code, so it really isn't much work.

The reason for this is, that loop-back is often optimized, so it handles network calls directly, without passing them through network API.
