There are many applications on Test machine which send test data to various servers on regular hourly basis.Servers are ftp/webserver/SOAP etc.Which network monitoring tool should be used to track the network related information? for example,at a particular time , this tool will display receivers's IP address,which port did specific application sent a data etc.In short network monitoring tool?
I know its a job of sys admin but now I am suppsoed to do that.

Thanks. I installed "Passler" similar tool.Now the requirement is to monitor every TCP/IP packet.Ultimately, every packet with data has to be stored and shoul be retrived whenevr receiving application says that they did not receive the data.
Is this possible?
