I am using gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.7 & trying to encrypt a file with private key whose public key I have shared to the partner who have to decrypt this file. I tried with --armour -symmetric switches which requires a passphrase to encrypt but I have requirement to encrypt it through private/public key. If I am using -encrypt --hidden-recipient option showing below error. I am able to see the public key while running -list-keys option. I am running it on AIX 6.1 under root user.

gpg: --try-all-secrets: skipped: public key not found
gpg: /tmp/test/INSONY01122014001.CSV: encryption failed: public key not found

Kindly suggest what could be the problem & how to resolve it.
