Default gnupg: can't use keyservers

Greets,

I recently tried to get/update keys from keyservers and always got stuff
like:

: can't connect to `pgp.zdv.uni-mainz.de': host not found
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn't connect: Not found


Didn't matter which keyserver, also tried it from the shell (and not
from enigmail/thunderbird).

google showed me:

http://bugs.sabayon.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2781

while I couldn't find anything in the gentoo bugzilla.

Re-emerged curl, enigmail, gnupg, even thunderbird (just in case) ...
still the same issues. I also tried an older release of curl ...

Did anyone hit this as well, and found the solution?

Thanks, Stefan

Well, I did not have such a problem last time I tried - although every
now and then I have found that the key servers get busy and
connections do not succeed.

Have you tried connecting to a different keyserver?

PS. Also, make sure that you do not attempt connections too
frequently in case some of the key servers are blacklisting repeat
offenders.

Yep, I did. Also tried it manually via shell (gnupg-commandline).

Same error:

: can't connect to `subkeys.pgp.net': host not found
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn't connect: Not found

Thanks for the hint, there was enough time between my efforts ...

Have you sniffed your network traffic to see if gnupg is actually
sending anything?

no. Right now I repeated it on my thinkpad and it works now ... gotta
repeat that on my desktop machine tomorrow.

Thanks, Stefan

I just tried it again and it works from here. I can see 7 keys on that
server.

Covering all bases and just in case, you're not trying to connect behind some
firewall/gateway that is blocking all but http/https packets?

Have you checked if you can ping the server?


My gpg version is:

app-crypt/gnupg-2.0.17(09:22:32 02/20/11)(bzip2 ldap nls -adns -caps -doc -
openct -pcsc-lite -selinux -smartcard -static)

Nope.

Yes, sir! ;-)

2.0.18 there, ~amd64

As mentioned, I will have access again tomorrow. On my thinkpad,
~amd64 as well, it works right now ...

Do you get the same if you try just a vanilla search?

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --search-keys 0x295CB83D55D0FCE6

here it works fine (tried it twice).
