How do I network my way into a job?

I've been looking for work for a little while, and have just come across position which would be ideal for me. It's an IT team leader role with an Engineering firm here in Brisbane (Australia), and I've applied for the role in the normal fashion (website / phone follow-up). However, general advice seems to be that one has better luck networking one's way into a role, and in this instance I have the option to do so -- my father is a respected engineer, and (although they're not close mates) has known the COO, MD, and Chairman of the board for years, and has previously worked with them. The organisation doesn't have a CIO, so there's a good chance the IT function reports to the COO. So, how could I use this information to my advantage? Or is the link too tenuous, and I should simply rely on the standard application process?

Sniffing application network activity

Hi all, I've just downloaded the TPG Usage Meter application to allow me to monitor from my desktop how much of my download quota (from my ISP) I still have available for the month. As the application needs my username and password for my ISP I'm interested to see what data the application sends to the internet and to what hosts this data is sent. I've already tried using wireshark to see what is going on but from the overload of packets I'm getting very confused. Is there someway to filter the capture by process? Otherwise, is there some other tool that would be better suited for the job? Thanks, Max
