Tell me if I’m spoiling too much.
I’m proceeding like I did to resolve Unknown Sender, but in reverse (in some ways).
None of my responses are the solution and I don’t get it.
I tried all kinds of IDs so is there a hidden hint which I maybe cannot see due to my poor translation/understanding ?
– Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
– I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.
Well, try to at least answer the question it asks, not the one you think it asks. Other than that, waiting a couple of days sometimes helps.
Thanks @dloser I think actually this is a matter of time. I’ll be back ;)
I’ve tried a few things, first obvious, then even going as far as holding my thumb against the textarea to get a good scan of my ‘thumbprint’
Tried waiting a few days, tried using the steps in the Privacy guide..
I’ve got a 3000-some bit key… is it looking for 4096 bits specifically?
i upload my public key to pgp.mit.edu
but also not working
any hint for solving this challenge
iam not getting any idea
hmm. same problem??? i am stuck. i waited for 2 days. but no reply.
i also wrote the pub_key of mine in the who are u.
i tried my id or e mail of the key.. but key not found is replied… so bad..
i also uploaded the key in sever(that server is same as the key of previous unknown sender is located.
hmm. after that. what can i do ?? just wait ?? ^^.
Have been waiting for 2 days already… How long can it take?
Alex - I put this on the shelf for 5 months since life got a little busy, came back today, and it worked.
So… the answer is somewhere between 2 days and 5 months.
I see, I guess I’ll wait a couple of days then. Thanks for this post guys!
@luxedo, FYI I uploaded just yesterday and now see a pgp message, so less than 24 hours for the wait.
However I’m getting a decryption error saying that the secret key is not found (although its there), any ideas?
Regarding the identity:
You should indicate the full id of the sender (name + email) like how it appears when you list the keys
Just completed the challenge with the help of a fellow member. I wanted to give few more hints for those who are stuck (90%!).
You can complete the challenge by just using web tools and https://pgp.key-server.io/ seems faster than the other website (less than 10min delay)
Thanks a lot! It worked perfectly first time!
