You're trying to use a network monitoring tool to figure out what the operating system knows about the application. That sounds as not using the right tool for the job. Why not ask the operating system directly?

In Linux, for instance, go for 'netstat' or 'ss'. I'm sure Windows PowerShell has something similar, or old trusted sysinternals.
