Does Robo-FTP PGP support RSA and the IDEA cipher?
Version 3.7 and later
Robo-FTP version 3.7 uses an implementation of OpenPGP which supports the RSA key algorithm and the IDEA encryption algorithm.
Robo-FTP 3.9 added the option to specify the cipher used by the PGPENCRYPT command. See the Help file for details.
Version 3.5 and previous
The official GnuPG distribution used with Robo-FTP does not contain IDEA due to a patent restriction. The patent does not expire before 2007 so don't expect official support before then.
However, there is an unofficial module available at ftp://ftp.gnupg.dk/pub/contrib-dk/. Look for:
ideadll.zip and ideadll.zip.sig
You will then need include the following option using the /gpgopt option of the
PGPDECRYPT script commands.
Use of this download file and option is not endorsed or supported by Serengeti Systems Incorporated.
