public key is not certified with a trusted signature

Created: 24 Mar 2011 | 1 comment

 We are running a script to fpt file via pgp encryption. We are using a public key to upload the file from several companies but one of the ftp is prompting for confirmation - are you sure you want to use this public key (y/n)?
I've tried re-adding the key to the keyring and update the key but nothings seems to work.
Results from -kc
Key ring: '//.pgppubring.pkr'

Is there a way to eliminate the prompt?

You're using the old NAI version of Command Line; it is not sold or supported by Symantec/PGP.  I don't know that you'll get much help on it here; at the old PGP support forums nobody was familiar with that old version.

The only thing I can suggest (besides buying a copy of PGP Command Line 10 :-) ) is to try signing the key with a private key of your own.  Note that PGP Command Line as sold by Symantec has been designed to work in a scripted environment and will never prompt you for input.
