gpg not able to contact keyservers

Postby ddeimeke » Thu Sep 15, 2011 5:50

Hi!

My gpg is not able to contact any keyservers, it seems a plugin is missing.

I get this error for other keyservers as well:

Code: Select all
dirk@drusus ~ $ gpg --recv-keys DC341C439584158E
gpg: requesting key 9584158E from hkp server opks.keyserver.ch
: can't connect to `opks.keyserver.ch': host not found
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn't connect: Not found
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0
dirk@drusus ~ $ nmap -p 80 opks.keyserver.ch

Starting Nmap 5.51 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2011-09-15 06:49 CEST
Nmap scan report for opks.keyserver.ch (77.109.162.32)
Host is up (0.020s latency).

PORT   STATE SERVICE
80/tcp open  http

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.09 seconds


A different error when trying to connect to LDAP-Keysevers:

Code: Select all
gpg --refresh-keys
gpg: requesting key CA57AD7C from ldap server keyserver.pgp.com
gpgkeys: protocol `ldap' not supported
gpg: no handler for keyserver scheme `ldap'
gpg: WARNING: unable to refresh key CA57AD7C via ldap://keyserver.pgp.com: Keyserver error


Any ideas?

Cheers

Dirk

Is there still no solution for this problem?

I run into this now after fresh installation.
Internet connection and so on is working right but gpg search-keys(...) not.
Code: Select all
queria@nb ~ $ gpg --keyserver gpg-keyserver.de --search-keys sabayon
gpg: searching for "sabayon" from hkp server gpg-keyserver.de
: can't connect to `gpg-keyserver.de': host not found
gpgkeys: HTTP search error 7: couldn't connect: Not found
gpg: key "sabayon" not found on keyserver
gpg: keyserver internal error
gpg: keyserver search failed: Keyserver error

queria@nb ~ $ ping gpg-keyserver.de
