man dirmngr

--keyserver name

The scheme is the type of keyserver: "hkp" for the HTTP (or compatible)
keyservers, "ldap" for  the  LDAP keyservers,  or  "mailto"  for the
Graff email keyserver.

"hkps" (as in dirmngr-conf.skel)?

After the keyserver name, optional keyserver configuration options may
be provided. These are the  same as the global --keyserver-options from
below (where? in man gpg2?), but apply only to this particular keyserver.

keyserver hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net option1 option2 or
keyserver hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net option1,option2

in dirmngr.conf:

2015-10-10 14:04:46 dirmngr[18334.1] command 'KS_SEARCH' failed:
Syntaxfehler im URI
2015-10-10 14:04:46 dirmngr[18334.1] DBG: chan_1 -> ERR 167772206
Syntaxfehler im URI <Dirmngr>

What is the right syntax? No example found in dirmngr-conf.skel.

Only with "keyserver hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net" and
"keyserver-options" in gpg.conf, it works.
