Ahhh.  I may have been off-base somewhat in my earlier reply.  Thanks for 
putting me on track, Jan!
Once of the best Windows Network Analyzers is Ethereal, Rudy.  Get it at 
http://www.ethereal.com/.  Try that one if you want to install it on a 
Windows box.

Another good one (albeit somewhat less of a packet analyzer than Ethereal) 
is Network Probe (http://www.objectplanet.com/index.html).  They used to 
have a free version (v0.4 I believe), but now I can't see it).  Perhaps 
google it ("Network Probe 0.4") and you might find a download location for 
it, who knows).
