Just wondering if there's any networking software out there that can detect outgoing traffic? Say I'm trying to find out the name of a virus that a computer is infected with, it would be nice to know what port and host it's trying to contact.

If anyone has any suggestions, that'd be great.

Bring up a command prompt then

netstat

Gives you some indication

Or use a software firewall such as zone alarm

If you want to get to the packet level, you can use Wireshark (http://www.wireshark.org/).

You are going about this the wrong way.
Does the virus do anything? any text you could google?

Snort, or another IPS/IDS, or egress filtering/scanning. That is a fairly mature sector of the market.

CurrPorts will show what ports are currently open and by what executables.
