Official Package Source Blocked

Hi there, I’m trying to roll out UiPath Studio to our users, but hitting a wall downloading packages. Specifically, a firewall. I’m getting pushback on allowing through the firewall to download packages on our Studio user and bot machines. So we’re pulling them down via a user with elevated privileges and manually copying them. Obviously, this is a tedious task and so far it’s only for the most basic project dependencies. I can’t imagine what a pain this will be to keep the packages updated.

Has anyone had a similar experience, and if so how did you make it work? I think I can script out downloads using PowerShell, but that feels more reactive than proactive. I know we can also upload the packages to Orchestrator, but again - very manual. I’m also wondering if installing Studio on the Orchestrator machine, installing the packages there, and then pointing everyone else’s machine to that location as a “Local” source would work. This is also manual, but less tedious. Any advice and/or documentation would be much appreciated!
