I have to admit, that your question made me laugh out loud. But hey, what a novel concept of replication! No you cannot do what you're trying to do. The two NT machines must be connected in the network or else there is no way to do this. Besides the whole purpose of replication is defeated if you do what you want to do. If you just want data from your server in another server..why not just take a backup onto a tape and copy the backup over to the other server.

The reason you cannot just take the publisher data in a tape and copy it to the subscriber, is because..the replication server keeps track of what it has sent and what it has recieved acknowledgement for. This can only happen if the data is sent through the network and following that a confirmation is sent fromthe subscriber saying he has recieved it. If there is no confirmation the replication server will try to send it again(also referred to as 'resend')
