    What OS are you using? Do you want to see what port's and IP's you are connecting to?

    netstat -an

    to view open connection/listening services you will want to run
    netstat -an this is in windows or linux. to view it in windows you will goto START > RUN > type in "cmd" or "command" if you are in windows 95/98/me.. .. it will bring up a command prompt and you type in the command i said.. "netstat -an" without quotes hit enter and you will see whats ports are listening/established or closing

    An easy way is to use a firewall which has a "Net State" function that can show the currently active connections and the details of these connections, including Remote Address/Port, Local Application/Port, Protocol and Status.
    I know Armor2net Personal Firwall has that feature. You can have a try.
    Get it here: http://www.armor2net.com
    Good luck!

    you can even add a refresh time, like: "netstat -an 20" ...that'll refresh your info every 20 secs.

    At the CMD prompt you can also use "ipconfig /all" which will list all your network interfaces, IP addresses, MAC address, DNS addresses,...
