Is there an application where I can run another application and it will allow me to see and more important manipulate the TCP data sent to another server?

I'm using Wireshark to view the data, but I want to alter it on the fly. Is there a way of doing that?

You can use a tool called netsed to achieve this.

I have used this on linux . The syntax for replacement with regular expression is same as "sed" tool but i think all the functionality of sed is not there in netsed.

On Windows you might have to run it with Cygwin.

Fiddler is the tool for that job, you just have to configure your application to use a proxy and you can then modify requests on the fly.

I assumed you were talking about HTTP but if you want to do the same thing with any TCP traffic have a look at those tools:

Is this only for web content? the requests I want to manipulate are not web requests.. – user122926 Mar 14 '12 at 10:51
@user122926 - TCP packets are TCP packets....http traffic is tcp traffic. How about try it? – Ramhound Mar 14 '12 at 12:48
