NetworkTrafficView review by publisher NirSoft:

What is NetworkTrafficView software from NirSoft, what is it used for and how to use it?

Network monitoring tool

NetworkTrafficView is a network monitoring tool that captures the packets that pass through your network adapter, and displays general statistics about your network traffic.

The packets statistics is grouped by the Ethernet Type, IP Protocol, Source/Destination Addresses, and Source/Destination ports.

For every statistics line, the following information is displayed: Ethernet Type (IPv4, IPv6, ARP), IP Protocol (TCP, UDP, ICMP), Source Address, Destination Address, Source Port, Destination Port, Service Name (http, ftp, and so on), Packets Count, Total Packets Size, Total Data Size, Data Speed, Maximum Data Speed, Average Packet Size, First/Last Packet Time, Duration, and process ID/Name (For TCP connections).

System Requirements

This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 10, including 64-bit systems.
One of the following capture drivers is required to use NetworkTrafficView:

WinPcap Capture Driver: WinPcap is an open source capture driver that allows you to capture network packets on any version of Windows. You can download and install the WinPcap driver from this Web page.
Microsoft Network Monitor Driver version 2.x (Only for Windows 2000/XP/2003): Microsoft provides a free capture driver under Windows 2000/XP/2003 that can be used by NetworkTrafficView, but this driver is not installed by default, and you have to manually install it, by using one of the following options:

Option 1: Install it from the CD-ROM of Windows 2000/XP according to the instructions on Microsoft Web site
Option 2 (XP Only) : Download and install the Windows XP Service Pack 2 Support Tools. One of the tools in this package is netcap.exe. When you run this tool in the first time, the Network Monitor Driver will automatically be installed on your system.

Microsoft Network Monitor Driver version 3.x: Microsoft provides a new version of Microsoft Network Monitor driver (3.x) that is also supported under Windows 7/Vista/2008.
The new version of Microsoft Network Monitor (3.x) is available to download from Microsoft Web site.

You can also try to use NetworkTrafficView without installing any driver, by using the 'Raw Sackets' method. Unfortunately, Raw Sackets method has many problems:

It doesn't work in all Windows systems, depending on Windows version, service pack, and the updates installed on your system. On some systems, Raw Sackets works only partially and captures only the incoming packets. On some other systems, it doesn't work at all.
On systems that 'Raw Sackets' method works properly, it can only capture IPv4 TCP/UDP packets. It cannot capture other type of packets, like the other capture drivers.
On Windows 7 with UAC turned on, 'Raw Sackets' method only works when you run NetworkTrafficView with 'Run As Administrator'.
