There is a DLL Call to check all ports and Traffic.

Actually wireshark is the monitor to use. If it it to complicated spend some time to learn it because so get great info from the tool using the filters available.

First thing i would do is determine which ports are opened up. Look in the firewall or run a tool like ZenMap against the server in comprehensive mode.
If you rather go for hardcore puzzling you could start the firewall logging and capture all accepted requests.

Maybe a tool like CurrPort is something you would like to try.
