PGP across multiple hosts


I've been using pga to manage pgp on on of my computers for a while now, and i've started using a diffent pc for may mail. I've tried importing my key backup into pga on the new pc and it's rejecting my pgp passphrase. any ideas?

Hm, I did the same recently and had no problems - did you import your "secret" key too? Did you sign it with a key you did not import yet?

I've definately got my private key on both boxen. And i've checked i've done all the things you said. The box i copied the keys onto still rejects my passphrase. i even tried copying contents of .gnupg from one box to the other and still no joy

Maybe you are using a different keyboard layout?
