    I don't see how it would be possible to install a package on a remote machine witout first transferring the packages to the machine. Is there any particular reason why you don't want to transfer the files to the machine?

    For windows some applications are there which help network admins to install packages remotely. I would like to know if there is any similar applications for linux.

    I've never seen anything like it for Linux. All the software installation methods I know involve some sort of transfer of files/packages to the machine.
