    Using a sniffer you can check what is sent (provided that it is not encrypted...), but by then it has been sent already.

    You'd have to use a proxy that can hold up the transmission, so that you can check the packets that have been sent. Later you might be able to unblock the transmission, so that the transaction is finished.

    I don't know if this is feasable.

    You can use a packet analyser like Ethereal theres a version for Windows, and it's Free and Open-source. It is a packet analyser what people call a "sniffer"

    Very powerful program
