Hi

I was trying to do below procedure to upload a key to the public keyserver using your key ID. however there's an error.

C:\Users\Administrator>pgp --keyserver-send 0x17263E3A --keyserver ldap://keyserver.pgp.com
 

Result: ldap://keyserver.pgp.com:keyserver send <3153;connection failed>

May I know what the error means.

thanks

Perhaps you cannot contact the key server from your location (port 389 is being blocked)?

Also, perhaps try sending to ldap://keyserver2.pgp.com

already disabled the windows firewall but still no luck. no other firewall involved.

I've tried uploading keys to keyserver and keyserver2, both with equal success.

Can you telnet to keyserver.pgp.com port 389?

It doesn't solve this problem, but you can always submit your key via the web UI, http://keyserver.pgp.com
