How do I monitor internet connections that specific applications are making?

I want to monitor the connections a specific application is making to the internet.  I am running Windows XP.  I would prefer not to have to purchase any software to accomplish this, so if there is open source stuff that would be ideal.  I basically just want to know what IP addresses/ports a specific client .exe is connecting to.  I used to have symantec and I know it did this to some degree, but I hated that software, so I'd prefer to use something else.

I think the program you want is Sysinternals' TCPView:

(it's now owned by Microsoft, hence the new URL)
