I am working in a restricted environment. I have a Debian system (Jessie) with no internet connection. I want to download the packages and dependencies on a Windows machine (where I don't have admin privileges) and then install them on the Debian system (I have root access to the Debian system).
How can I download the packages? Can I download them using a browser?
Is it possible to download the whole repository as ISOs? If so, how big is it? Where can I find this information?
This for a project where I need to develop a driver.
I might need simple things like
gcc or maybe some utility software. The problem is that the uncertainty is too high as to what I might need during the project. So I need a solution where I can either:
- download any package anytime I want on a Windows machine and then install it on the Debian system, or
- just download the complete repository on Windows and set it up as offline repository.
In any case, the download is possible only on a Windows Machine with no Admin privileges.
