Best way to deal with emails is to download ThunderBird and add Enigmail extention

I think you need to use --sign rather than --decrypt.

Sorry I misread your post. Meni is right in order to register with the bot you have to use --decrypt

@Meni

that's not what it says here: http://wiki.bitcoin-otc.com/wiki/GPG_authentication#GPG_authentication

Quote
Now, Alice visits the link, copies the encrypted message, then runs "gpg --decrypt" command and pastes in the encrypted message. She then enters her password if prompted.

I did! But it doesn't work. I use the command console under windows to type in "gpg --decrypt" followed by a blank and then the encrypted message from the bot. doesn't work Embarrassed

speculist, yes you are right and me and Meni are both wrong. OTC authentication procedure changed recently. Which part are you having problems with? Any error messages?

well, i don't get asked for my password (but that should happen) and i don't get the decrypted message. i don't remember the exact error message, very technical Tongue

do you know what the new authentication procedure is or if the wiki will be updated soon so noobs like me can handle it?

Smiley Well, we need that message in order to help you.
Wiki is to date and the link I posted has the right procedure. Me and Meni were suggesting the way it used to be done

Okay, here is what happens: it says:

"gpg: can't open '[first line of encrypted message]': no such file or directory"
gpg: decrypt_message failed: No such file or directory"

and then

"[second line of encrypted message] is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batchfile"

and so on and so forth, through all the lines of the excrypted message.


Any ideas what i'm doing wrong? Huh


Oh, and please: Is there any way to find out the email adress associated with a gpg, even though i'm not registerd yet? i really want to contact this one seller and time may be running out..

"gpg --decrypt" followed by the encrypted message you get from the bot after you type in "gpg eregister [nick] [key]"

And can you help with the email problem?

Man, the way it works is if I ask a question about commands, you copy and paste exactly what was typed and what messages returned. If there is sensitive information just put *** instead. Otherwise we'll be here all day.

It is very simple. You go to the #bitcoin-otc and start a chat with gribble. Then you type:
Code:
;;gpg eauth yournickname

Then you copy the link that gribble provides and paste it into your browser. Once the page opens, you copy everything.
Then you open command line and type
Code:
gpg --decrypt
and press enter. Once the cursor is on the new line you paste what you copied from the page. At this point you may be prompted for password. Next you press Control-D to terminate input if on linux/mac. If on windows, press Enter, Control-Z, Enter to terminate input.

It will spit out a line like this:
Code:
freenode:#bitcoin-otc:5588cea3blahblahblah7e35e5d22e97080ee

Copy it and go to your conversation with gribble. Type ;;gpg everify paste_the_line_you_copied. Should look something like this
Code:
;;gpg everify freenode:#bitcoin-otc:5588cea3blahblahblah7e35e5d22e97080ee

And that's it. Be warned that there is time limit to preform authentication. If it takes you too long, the request will timeout and you'll have to do the whole thing again.


To get email associated with a public key you can go browse servers if it's uploaded there or you can import key and then do a long listing of keys


What OS are you running?

The same way you would with any other person. Alternatively, when you are connected to Freenode, you can type
Code:
/q gribble

Please also read
http://wiki.bitcoin-otc.com/wiki/GPG_authentication

What I described here is just the authentication part of the process. You will need to install gpg, create a key pair and then register with gribble before you can authenticate and trade on #bitcoin-otc. For details and help you can ask on the channel - the guys there are very helpful

You get only few minutes to complete registration/authentication and then your request is discarded. Try again

Sorry cypherdoc, I'm a little distracted today.

Your problem is that you are trying to use the old way of registering and the new way of confirming the registration.
Try:

Code:
;;gpg eregister yourname keyID

The rest seems fine
