in reply to TCP or SOCKET or HTTP ... track everything my computer is doing

What OS are you working on ? Linux has a built-in "tcpdump" program that can (selectively) capture what you want. There are options in Windows, both Open source (windump) and MS-specific (I believe the MS network monitor is now a part of SMS).

If you want to capture this info in perl, use the Net::Pcap series of modules.

    Thanks for the quick reply! This is exactly what I needed to get started.

    Ideally, the resulting script will be cross-platform, which is why I want to use Perl.

    I'll post back after I've had a chance to do some appropriate research/experimenting.

    Thanks again!
