Capture Data From Port80 IEExplorer

I need to be able to capture to a text file all data being transmitted from Internet Explorer 6.0
ie. When i complete a form on a web page, see what data is being transmitted to the web site.

I have had a bit of a go with winsock, but it reports port 80 in use.

I also need to capture info coming in on port 80, but, even help with incoming will be of great assistance.

Appreciate any help.

You can use MS Soap Trace Utility which comes with the SOAP toolkit, if you want to observe just one site.
Here you can listen to a port (say, 8080) and then define that port as the proxy port in IE so that IE will send request to this port, thus enabling you to view the request. It is possible to transfer the request on to the original destination and hence view the output too.

Another option is to write a simple proxy yourself and display/log requests and responses.

iNet Activex controls with VB could be used for this.
