Hi all users of GnuPG.
This is my second question about gnupg and enigmail and LDAP keyserver.
When I wish search public key on my corporate  PGP keyserver  ( Version 
7.0 for Windows NT/2000 and UNIX Copyright (c) 1998-2000 by Networks 
Associates technology, Inc., and its Affiliated Companies)

I see:
--------------------begin cut---------------------------------------
C:\gnupg>gpg --keyserver ldap:// --search-key chsv
gpg: searching for "chsv" from ldap server
(1)     Stanislav Chernyshev <chsv at>
          2048 bit DSA key D2031C82, created: 2005-01-04
Keys 1-1 of 1 for "chsv".  Enter number(s), N)ext, or Q)uit > 1
gpg: requesting key D2031C82 from ldap server
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0
------------- end cut ------------------------------------------------

The key created with GNUPG v. 1.4.0 but  PGP  keyserver  change  header
on  my public  key
Version: GnuPG v1.4.0 (MingW32)
Version: PGPsdk 2.0.1 Copyright (C) 2000 Networks Associates Technology,
Inc. All rights reserved.

When, I wrote this letter on mailing-list "enigmail at",
to me have answered

I can only imagine that the keyserver you're using is not fully OpenPGP
compliant. For more details, you better ask the GnuPG users list
<gnupg-users at>; there are several experts on key servers
subscribed to that list.

What can I do or where is find fully OpenPGP complaint keyserver.
What is this " no valid OpenPGP data found" ?
Best regards
Stanislav Chernyshev.
