sorry for the delay in getting back to you on-list.
[Could you please send me the error output you get when decrypting the
encrypted message I sent you yesterday, telling you that I had problems
in checking keyserver's connection as well, it's just that I'm eager to
know and I want to exclude key compromise].
In order to get the details of the communication of keyserver helper
programs with the keyserver you should use the --use-temp-files and
--keep-temp-files --keyserver options.
For example, I tried (a hundred times, with variations) to refresh your
key attempting to log keyserver<->helpers communication to check it
myself before giving advice
gpg2 --keyserver hkps://hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net --refresh-keys
--display-charset utf-8 --keyserver-options
But tempin.txt tempout.txt are nowhere.
I made a search in the gnupg's pipermail list archive and I consistently
found surely authoritative indication of David Shaw
--debug 1024 --keyserver-options "use-temp-files keep-temp-files"
do result in tempin.txt tempout.txt being logged somewhere.
I successfully generated those files in the past when checking
communication with keyservers, but I haven't wrote it down and I can't
integrate David Shaw's instructions into the above mentioned
command-line I used.
I'm giving up on this now, eager to hear once for all times HOW to
successfully create them.
