TCP or SOCKET or HTTP ... track everything my computer is doingby Anonymous Monk
|on Dec 21, 2012 at 00:17 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Is there a way to track all connections my pc is making, be it TCP, SOCKET or HTTP?
To put it simply, if my box/pc is talking to the outside world through a network connection, i want to create a log of it.
I would like to capture info similar to what is captured when using something like the Live Http Headers add-on for Firefox.
I'm trying to automate a process, and plan on doing it generically enough that posting the code might be useful for someone else in the future.
Any help would be appreciated, be it vocab, a pointer to where to listen, anything.
Thanks for your help.
