I have a problem with an application (VisualSVN) that is hosted on Amazons ec2.

when I try to connect to svn it refuses the connection. What I want to know is if an actual connection attempt is coming through to the application and the application is actively refusing it.

so is there a way to see incoming connections?

I found Microsofts Network Monitoring tool, it seems to do the job nicely

Wireshark is my tool of choice for such things. If you don't want to install it grab the portable version, which is handy to keep on your USB stick.
