Noob here. Not a strong computer user.

I run XP and have used Kleopatra to generate a GPG key. I understand that I have to upload this to the directory at bitcoin-otc.com but am unable to see how to do this. I would be grateful to anyone who can give me some direction. Kleopatra has an "import certificate" function that asks for something from my directory but I do not see how to go the other direction to send this out.

I have a "fingerprint" and an ASCII "public block key."

Also, the "key ID" I have is only 8 characters long whereas the key IDs I see at the Web of Trust are 16 characters long. Have I done something wrong, used a wrong setting to generate my key?

thanks for your time

PS I placed this here because the forum is about "BTC-accepting sites" whereas the technical forum seems to be specific to bitcoin.exe

Thanks, I must have done something wrong with GPG. I downloaded GnuWin32 which gave me Kleopatra. My key ID is 8 characters long but all the ones I see in use are 16 characters. I must not be using GNU right or I have the wrong version. I'm on a Windows machine, not Linux.

I've had great luck lately with cryptophane + cygwin gpg as a front end on windows.

It gave me a "fingerprint" of BB85CC1E5D18B9E292G56G18H5957R217G44F (I made that up but that's how it looks, no special characters, only numbers & capital letters).

It says the key ID is R217G44F, which is the last 8 characters.

So all I do is give gribble the last 16 characters as the key ID?
