Red Hat rpm permissions

I have a Red Hat 6.4 OS on a closed network that need to update manually.
I copied some rpms to a private folder on a closed network. But later I notice the ownership of each rpms change to me and had 600 permissions.   i.e unix2dos
How should I change the permissions of rpm's to what they should be.  Is there a standard permission for rpm's?

No, the only thing that matters is that you are able to issue command to install them

rpm -ivh RPM_NAME.rpm

When and RPM is installed, what matters is the permissions of what it installs and RPM does it when it runs.

You can always change the permissions of any file using command
chmod

See manual
man chmod

Example
chmod 777 filename

To change the ownership, you can use chown
man chown

Also, I don't know how you copied but you can always maintain permissions in your copy command
cp -p source target

when I run rpm -ivh RPM_NAME.rpm,  I am getting Warning:  xxx.rpm Header V4 DSA/SHA1 signature, key ID #####  Error: Failed Dependencies:
RPM_NAME = RPM_NAME.rpm is needed by RPM_NAME...x86_64

Do I needed download and copy the said dependencies...and perform the rpm -ivh on them?

Check if you have this RPM.  If you don't you have to get it.  This process is tedious and may take many more downloads but you can certainly try.

What is good way of downloading specific rpms without a subscription to Red Hat?

farzanjCommented:
If you don't have subscription, it becomes difficult.  The clever thing is to use one of the RedHat clones instead--like CentOS or Scientific linux.  Since they are clones, they are exactly the same and they are absolutely free.  Yum works as well.  Then you don't have any of these problems.
