Specify the keyserver to use. If no keyserver is specified, it
will parse the GnuPG options file for a default keyserver to use.
If no keyserver can be found, keylookup will abort.
Use a port other than 11371.
keylookup supports displaying the search results with 3
different frondends. Both whiptail and dialog are
interactive and allow the user to select the keys to import.
The third frontend plain is non-interactive and just
prints the keys to STDOUT. The user must then call GnuPG him/herself.
If available, /usr/bin/dialog is the default. If it is not available but /usr/bin/whiptail is installed, then this is used instead. If nothing else works, well fall back to plain.
Dont ask the user which keys to import, but instead import all
keys matching the search-string. If this is given no
frontend is needed.
Similar to GnuP keylookup will only honor the http_proxy
environment variable if this option is given. If it is not given
but your GnuPG options file includes it, then keylookup will
Print a brief help message and exit successfully.
HOME Used to locate the default home directory.
GNUPGHOME If set directory used instead of "~/.gnupg".
GNUPGBIN If set used as gpg binary instead of "gpg".
http_proxy Only honored when the option --honor-http-proxy is set or honor-http-proxy is set in GnuPGs config file.
keylookup Christian Kurz will query your default keyserver for Christians keys and offer you to import them into your keyring with the dialog frontend (if available).
keylookup --honor-http-proxy --frontend plain wk@gnupg will query the default keyserver again, now using the http_proxy if the environment variable is defined and list wk@gnupgs (Werner Koch)s key on STDOUT.
keylookup --keyserver pgp.mit.edu Peter Palfrader will now ask the keyserver pgp.mit.edu for my (Peters) keys and display them for import in dialog.
~/.gnupg/options GnuPGs options file where keylookup will take the keyserver and honor-http-proxy values from if it exists.
