I want to log any URLs that are being called from Flash on my Mac. Any suggestions on tools that I could use? A nice TCP logger would work.

Charles and HTTP Scoop are good options. They have very different approaches from each other, so one of them is likely to work for you. Good luck!

+1 for Charles. – Chris W. Rea Oct 9 '09 at 3:01

Though not the friendliest tool, there's always tcpdump which has the advantage of being built-in.

Assuming you're talking about Flash in the browse and you're using Firefox, a nice add-on is HttpFox... I use it all the time for monitoring HTTP requests.

I also like Charles that Avi Flax recommended above. Charles has the advantage of running as a separate application as a real HTTP proxy, so it can capture HTTP traffic from any browser that's configured to use it as a proxy.
