Problems with PGP on the command line
Posted on 2001-08-06
I don't know is this is the correct place to ask this, I can't find anything more PGP related...
When I type the following into the command prompt in windows2000 (PGP 6.5) "pgp -a -e -t plaintext.txt email@example.com" I get the plaintext output as ciphertext in a file called "plaintext.txt.asc". As required.
If however I use "pgp -a -e -t +batchmode plaintext.txt firstname.lastname@example.org" I get a message saying "Encryption error" and no encrypted file is created.
I need to use PGP on a remote web server and therefore I need to use the +batchmode to suppress questions.
What am I doing wrong?
