VMWare P2V on physical DMZ server

I am currently migrating all of our physical servers to a new VMWare environment.  A handful of our servers are in a DMZ, and I'm wondering what the best way is to convert them and move them onto our virtualized environment.  What is the best way to do a P2V on these DMZ servers so that I can import the files to our VMWare infrastructure?  What I was attempting to do was setup a laptop with plenty of space and install the standalone client/server version of converter so I could get the disk files and then connect up to the network where our VMWare implementation sits and import them.  However, the converter utility wants to convert by doing the P2V from the DMZ server directly to a VMWare host.  I'd just like to creat the file and manually copy it over.
