I'd say use Ethereal/tcpdump... if you want to see what's happening down the 
wire... probably a bit overwhelming unless you really are into the low-level 
details of tcp, ip, et al.

Or: TracePlus/WinSock (commercial, from TracePlus/WinSock ($200)... 
time-limited demo available) ... which hooks into WinSock so you can see 
things from the winsock side of the connection (excuse the pun) - but this 
won't really show the real detail of exactly what's flying around in the 
network (for that see Ethereal).
