Today I installed a multiplayer game client called GameRanger, which still supports Age Of Empires II. Its a decent client and I love how it brings me back to the good old days of AOE2 before multiplayer support was dropped.

Anyways, a few hours after I installed GameRanger I checked the task manager and I noticed that GameRanger (32 bit) was still running. This made me curious so I checked CurrPorts, which shows active ports and the processes using them, and I see GameRangerSetup.exe on the list with an active connection.

Here is what CurrPorts has to say about it:

Process Name: GameRangerSetup.exe
Process ID: 5032
Protocol: TCP
Local Port: 1427
Local Address: 192.168.0.31
Remote Port: 80
Remote Port Name: http
Remote Address: 199.189.108.180
Remote Host Name: dl1.gameranger.com
State: Established
Product Name: GameRanger
File Description: GameRanger
File Version: 1, 0, 0, 0
Company: GameRanger Technologies
Remote IP Location: United States, Providence, 84332

Process was created over 5hr ago on this machine by my user

I see that its connected but I cant see its bandwidth usage, much less what data it is sending/receiving.. I would like to see what its doing, is that what a Packet Sniffer is? I don't like the idea of installing WinPcap on my computer, but I suppose I could use it temporarily.

What is the best way to see the data that this process is sending/receiving?


Thank You!
