Yes, I looked on Google first, but found only lots of shareware software which doesn't fit my needs.

Do you ppl know a good and freeware network debugger? Something that allows me to watch the communications between certain programs and the Internet. And if it's designed for Delphi much better. I'm going to use it mostly to optimize the communications of my engine, and examine the protocols of other applications as well.

Regards! :D

Ethereal (http://www.ethereal.com/) (now renamed to Wireshark (http://www.wireshark.org/)) is the most comprehensive network packet sniffer that I know of, and it's free, open source and everything else we love.
