In other words, How to know where a program software/EXE is trying to connect or communicate throughout the internet? Example is I have this downloaded suspicious (exe) software that is clean in all virus scanners incl virustotal but when I execute it there's a possibility that its inconspicuously connecting/communicating in the internet. How can I monitor its network activity to where its communicating? Websites or ip addresses its trying to connect to. Everyone knows windows firewall is useless... So I'm going to block it through hosts.
