Hi,

I have server 2011 running Symantec's Encryption desktop.  We receive many files that are PGP encrypted and I would like to know if there is a solution to detect when a file is received and automatically decrypt it and move it to a new location on the server.  Thanks,

J

I was thinking it is more applicable to PGP Commandline instead of the GUI version. Note PGP Desktop does not include a command line tool that can decrypt PGP files

there is a small example such that settle the keyring then thereafter that maybe can schedule to decrypt the files in specific folder in periodic fashion...

also discussion on "Best Methods to Script PGP CL and schedule automatic Runs" but it did not share out the script though but shed third party (http://www.cryptosoft.com/) to automate still using this commandline
