Is there a way to determine what ip address(s) an application is trying to hit via the command prompt?
I assumed net stat -a but either I'm not understanding what I'm seeing or that isn't the method to use.

My issue is, I need to know the ip range that Skype uses so I can modify our firewalls, etc.. thanks!

I use Comm VIew for this (tamosoft.com) and it works well. Wire Shark is free and may also work for this purpose. Try either one (Comm View has a trial version).

I haven't verified if Skype.exe is the correct name. Please adjust as needed...
netstat -anb
