This might be a FAQ, but I haven't found a suitable answer yet.
I want to exchange encrypted documents. I'm using gpg-1.0.2 for some
real unix and my partner on the other side of the tapped channel is
We've exchanged public keys and he can decrypt the messages that i've
encrypted using his pubkey. But I cannot decrypt his mesgs
This is what gpg says:
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: [some name]
1024-bit ELG-E key, ID 4200E2E2, created 2000-09-14 (main key ID 6D274C63)
gpg: cipher algorithm 1 is unknown or disabled
gpg: encrypted with 1024-bit ELG-E key, ID 4200E2E2, created 2000-09-14
gpg: public key decryption failed: unknown cipher algorithm
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available
i've created my key pair using the defaults.
is there anyone who has experienced something similar?
creating a new keypair is not really a problem since this key is not
distributed so far...
