recv-keys

recv-keys is a simple shell script written by Mike Gurski to send and receive PGP keys to (and from) all of the OpenPGP keyservers. This bypasses the problem that not all of the servers synchronize to each other.

You will need the host program (which probably came with your OS distribution) and GPG. You'll also need a Unix computer--this won't work under Windows.

To use it, download recv-keys and put it in a directory in your $PATH. In that directory, make a hard link from it to send-keys (i.e. run 'ln recv-keys send-keys'). Then, run whichever is appropriate with a list of key IDs. To send my public key to the keyservers, I'd run 'send-keys D8C75CF5'.
