    Without direct internet connectivity, you would need to either:

    • Proxy the internet access via another device (ie Squid Proxy or Firewall) so it has internet access via another device.

    Or stand up a local server for patching (download and approve patches to these services, then push it out):

    • ie WSUS server (for Windows)
    • or Sattelite server (or equvilient Linux patching).
