Thank you for answering. I guess your suggestion is what I currently do,
but I cannot use -ado describe- -ado uninstall- anyway ??? I'm not sure
where I go wrong. Do you install the package files from a local drive
with some command that I missed ? 
Another thing, is there no way to download the entire load of files in a
package outside Stata as opposed to downloading them one by one from fx

Merely do the ssc install commands on a machine connected to the internet, which will get all of the files pertaining to a specific package and install them properly on that machine. When you are done, use operating system commands to copy all files in /ado/plus to a single directory (that will depend on your operating system). Copy that directory to a USB key. Copy the directory from the USB key to the server's SITE directory and change ownership/permissions appropriately, and you should be all set.

There is no command that will give you everything from SSC. That would be a bad idea, as there is much stuff on SSC that you would not want to use on a version 11.1 system. I would merely build up a set of useful ado's, from SSC or SJ, in the internet-accessible machine above, and periodically copy the contents of its PLUS directory to the locked-down server's SITE directory.
