Question Manually Update Linux OS


Recently I had to migrate one of my Linux Servers to a private network with no internet access. My IP Address and Domain name for my server changed also and now differs from the information at the RHN site. How do I receive and post Red Hat Linux OS Updates manually since I have no internet connection on my Linux Server?

well I guess since your not on the net you do not need any security up dates and when the new distro comes out go to the library and order or down load the disk.

It seems to me you've got 2 options:

1. can you create a tunnel to the internet?
2. create a local repository that RHN can see and then copy/move/sneakernet+CD the updates over.

If you've got a legal copy of RH (as it seems), RH will be able to tell you how to do this. Its rare but not unknown.
