View Full Version : [ubuntu] Download packages and transfer to non Internet machine

March 23rd, 2010, 12:30 PM
I have a server which is in an isolated LAN onto which I would like to install some packages from the Ubuntu Repositories.

I realise I can go to packages.ubuntu.com and download them one at a time following the dependencies through but this is a bit of a nightmare.

Is there anyway I can use the -d option of apt-get to download the files on another machine so I can transfer the lot over in one go?

It is probably important to note that the server is running 8.04.4 and the other machine I have run 9.10 and may or may not have said packages installed.

Any help appreciated
