I have the same problem. Is it because I am behind a firewall? But I can
use lynx and wget to access the net.
Is there a way by which I can get gpg to use mail to get the public key
of a person rather than trying to get it thru direct connection? By sending=
email@example.com for eg.?
Thanks in advance,
