Newbie question: GnuPG and PGP
Sun, 7 Jan 2001 19:58:27 +0100
thank you for your posting, I have directly this same problem.
There are legal possibility to use PGP 5.x or 6.x on UNIX
server for US or Canadian peoples only. I'm from Poland. For
UNIX users PGP 5.x or 6.x can be used without limitations.
So, I had a concept to install on Windows station PGP 5.x
and for UNIX server, whom I administrate GNUpg 1.0.4 to
hope, that this let to interchange keys, signed and encrypted
messages between server equipped with GNUpg and Windows-stations
with PGP. The steps, which I have made are similar and effect
My friend, who has received a mail signed with GNUpg was
validating the signature as "NOT OK", but this same verification
made with GNUpg - as "OK"
I think, that is big problem to discussion on list, so
let me advice you to subscribe a list, because I suppose,
that is not possible to solve with one e-mail.
I wanna get answer from list as you.
