Wireshark or CommView will tell you how many packets reach a machine. I use CommView myself.  CommView will tell you what process and what ports are used and how many bytes. For example, right now I can see that DropBox is updating.

I recommend CommView and I think it will do what you want.

Hi,

The simplest way i am using is windows resource monitor.
Please check below pictures and you can find a target application in 2 steps.

For more detailed analysis you can use wireshark which is mentioned before.

Please use Comm View as I suggested (trial is available). It shows you ports as well as application. I have it running now and it shows me all this.
