Does Robo-FTP PGP support RSA and the IDEA cipher?
Version 3.9 and later
Robo-FTP 3.9 added the option to specify the cipher used by the PGPENCRYPT command. See the Help file for details.
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.
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.
