Thank you for replying and the server info. In the options file, there is a command to list the keyservers. $ host -l pgp.net | grep www I have tried this and got a long list of servers along with the some of the servers you mentioned. Do I need to upload my public key to all these servers or do the key servers exchange the new/updated keys? The main server I relied on until now was www.keyserver.net. It looks like you need to add you public key ID AND the keyserver name as part of the signature. If there is better and transparent solution, please do let me know. Thank you once again. -- Subba Rao subba9@home.com http://members.home.net/subba9/ GPG public key ID 27FC9217
