Is it possible to download the python packages used with pypm ? I have a computer that cannot be connected to the network and would like to use pypm.

The "pypm install" command caches the download to a certain directory. You can run "pypm info --full" to see the full path to the cache directory.

In this directly, you will see a bunch of *.pypm files. You can now run "pypm -n install /path/to/file" on one of those files to directly install it.

Does that help?

I have a similar problem where our internet security doesn't allow pypm to connect to the internet.

How can I download the *.pypm files before running the -n command option?
