I have some software installed on my LAMP-based host that I'm worried about that it might "phone home". Is there a way to intercept connections my server initiates to the outside?

I'm not concerned about normal server traffic, where my server simply responds to incoming requests, only those connections my server initiates itself.

Particularly interested if there's anything you can do on a shared hosts, but also on VPS/dedicated.
