The hotfix is a special server object that reads the shavlik.xml to check for what shavlik deems are hotfixes. You should be able to configure this to run in an offline mode by following the steps in the BladeLogic VPC users guide. You can download the file externally and then place it in a directory and have BL read that file. Or alternatively, you can just use the applications system object and check for hotfixes there as it lists all apps, patches, and hotfixes as identified via MS.

Also, it's the appserver that needs internet access to do this, or you need to download the shavlik files as adam notes, to the appserver. the target servers do not need internet access.
