Hi we are running AutoMate on a virtual Windows Server 2012.  The server has Symantec PGP 10.3.1 installed on it as well.


I have received a key from a partner who I must send encrypted files to.  I imported the  .ASC  key file into PGP and have encrypted and sent files to the partner successfully.  Now I wish to automate the process and I am looking at using the Cryptography action in AutoMate but I can't seem to figure out which option to use and how to get the .ASC key file applied in the AutoMate action.


Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

.ASC file contains, for the sake of making it easier to understand, a text version of the public key. It has to be imported to a keyring as you have done. AutoMate uses keyrings, so just point to you PGP keyrings and you are there.

On PGP keyring location, you have to find out where your installer has installed them. Refer to your software help references to get that information.
