need help with gpg
I have a requirement from another company to encrypt/decrypt files via gpg (files are then FTP'ed). I am having problems getting a key generated (using CentOS 6.3, if that matters).
I am using "gpg --gen-key", and I get the following errors:
can't connect to `/home/bob/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent': No such file or directory
gpg-agent: command get_passphrase failed: Operation cancelled
gpg: cancelled by user
gpg: Key generation canceled.
I have tried starting the agent (both as the "bob" use and as "root"), but I still get the same error. I have tried running "gpg-agent --verbose --server" and I do not see any errors from the agent.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
