Importing Existing Private Keys

Created: 20 Jul 2012 | 1 comment

I am having trouble with using a private and public key pair that I have imported from another machine.  What I think is the problem is that I don't have the V and I flags set when I do a pgp --list-keys.  I am not sure how to get those to be set. 

Can someone tell me what commands I would need to run to get these flags?

Thanks.

The 'I' flag means that the private key is implicitly trusted.  Run

pgp --set-trust --trust implicit Key-or-User-ID
