Dear Sirs,

I was wondering if WireShark can be used to track generic users' downloads from cyberlockers and torrent sites (not from my IP address alone but from all the IPs from which the sites are accessed).

Thanks for your time in answering this.

Yes, if you can capture right at each of the sites you want to monitor, which you probably can't. You can't capture from a remote location. You can always only capture packets that cross your physical path.
