This software records and exhibits all socket operations made by an application and the data transceived. It is compatible with any application.
The output is displayed in a scrollable text box, which can be easily managed and exported as a text or HTML file. By default, only 32KB of data is kept in the scrollable text box, but it can be increased to higher data limits, including unlimited. This makes it easy to analyze and manage large amounts of data.
TCP Spy also comes with a powerful protocol detection feature that automatically determines whether the protocol being communicated over the socket is text-based. If it is, TCP Spy will test each following message for text and display it accordingly. If not, TCP Spy will show the message in hexadecimal and ASCII. In the case of HTTP, the HTTP headers will be displayed as text.
If you register TCP Spy, you will be sent a code that enables additional features, including the ability to send data to a file and increase the data limit in the scrollable text box. Without a license, TCP Spy does not provide these features, but it's still a powerful tool for anyone looking to analyze and monitor socket calls.
