Fair point, although that would be a network misconfiguration as
ping/ICMP is required for network troubleshooting, packet fragmentation
stuff etc (for reference I'm testing from a dedicated line that I control).
I can confirm that all hosts at least appear to respond (i.e. not stall
gpg), when queried direct, but a number don't seem to be maintaining the
same pool of keys:
gpgkeys: key 7977070A723C6CCB696C0B0227A5AC5A01937621
gpgkeys: key E76095ECDACD5DEC7653A99617D23C7DFDC2F38F
Cant be retrieved hosts:
Not found on keyserver hosts:
hkp://18.104.22.168:80 was particularly bad:
gpg: refreshing 2 keys from hkp://22.214.171.124:80
gpg: requesting key 01937621 from hkp server 126.96.36.199
gpg: requesting key FDC2F38F from hkp server 188.8.131.52
gpg: packet(2) with unknown version 71
gpg: read_block: read error: invalid packet
gpg: Total number processed: 0
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpgkeys: key 7977070A723C6CCB696C0B0227A5AC5A01937621 not found on keyserver
gpgkeys: key E76095ECDACD5DEC7653A99617D23C7DFDC2F38F not found on keyserver
The stalling I guess is an Enigmail screwup (more commandline experience
for me is fine ;))
