identify application causing network traffic

I was wondering if anybody knows of an application that allows me to see which application or daemon is causing network traffic from and/or to my Linux box. You can use tcpdump to view the traffic but it does not allow me to see which process is opening these ports and generates and/or receives the traffic.

thank you

Once you get the port via tcpdump, you can use netstat to see what's bound to the port (netstat -a).
