Importing a private/public key pair that was created with PGP Corporate Desktop.

This page only applies to Robo-FTP 3.5 and earlier. Please see the Help file for information about importing keys in more recent versions.

Assuming that you are only decrypting files that you will receive with Robo-FTP, then these are the steps to follow:

1. create an empty keyring using the Robo-FTP configurator

2. export existing public/private key pair from PGP Desktop to file name of your choice

3. import that key pair into Robo-FTP using the file that you created in Step 2

If you also intend to encrypt files, you will need to take an additional step for each recipient for which you will encrypt files:

4. import each recipient's public key into Robo-FTP

Caution: Robo-FTP does not support the IDEA cipher. Make sure that the key pair from PGP Corporate Desktop does not use IDEA. For more information on this cipher, go to
