Using PGP 2.6.3i keys

Tue, 25 May 1999 13:25:15 +0200

hi there,

with GnuPG version 0.9.6 (+ compiled cipher modules rsa and idea in
/usr/local/lib/gnupg), I tried to use pgp 2.6.3.ia RSA/IDEA keys. I've
extracted the public key from pgp and imported it to gnupg. Then I encrypted a
file with that imported key (gpg --encrypt --recipient frank --rfc1991
--load-extension rsa --load-extension idea <file >file.gpg), but when I tried to
decrypt it, pgp 263ia reports an "unsupported packet format" error. The same
thing the other way round. What am I doing wrong or is gnupg not supposed to be
able to en-/decrypt to/from pgp 263ia users at this point?

thanks for answer,
