below is my reply to a similar question.
if you are on a server without GUI, the process should be the same but 
you will need another application instead of synaptic. Check out the 
different front-ends to apt.

on the machine which needs packages but lacks a network connection:
start synaptic, select the packages you want install, go to "File"
select create download script. (don't close synaptic)

Save this file, move it to your other pc which has a network connection,
execute this script
take all packages back to the other computer.
In Synaptic go to "File" -> "Add downloaded packages" -> select to
folder in which the downloaded packages are located.
and you are done.
