Thanks for your answer but I am looking for a solution to get
the newest updates on another machine, since the machine, that
needs the updates, is offline.

So my plan is to get the Updates/patches for 12.1 on machine A
and transfer them to machine B with a freshly installed OpenSuSE
12.1 to perform the update from some directory there.

Have you thought about mirroring the repositories that you use,
i.e., by rsync? You will download packages that you don't have
installed, but if bandwidth on A is less a problem, that could get
you working.

See http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Mirror_infrastructure how to
get these files. In particular, the rsync module opensuse-updates
is of interest. Use rsync option --exclude to limit your downloads
to 12.1.

When you have the files, you can transfer them to your system B by
any means that you device and declare that as a local md repo.
