Hi Fabio,

the network tab has config items for dirmngr, so you are looking at

https://gnupg.org/documentation/manuals/gnupg/Dirmngr-Options.html#index-keyserver

and it should make a difference like outlined there.
(Just a few wild ideas what may going one: you have the gpg option still set and this is not considered. Otherwise check the dirmngr log.)

Best,
Bernhard

Thank you Bernhard,

with this manual is easier to search info.
And what about the field "Use keyserver at URL" in Settings-> Configure Kleopatra-> GnuPG system-> Network -> Configuration for keyserver.

Regardless of whether I fill it in or not, I do not notice any difference.

Thank you.

Okay, so if we run
gpgconf --list-options gpg
there are the following lines that match your question:

keyserver:0:2:use keyserver at URL:1:1:URL:::

auto-key-locate:0:1:use MECHANISMS to locate keys by mail address:1:1:MECHANISMS:::

so, those would be the options that would be set to "gpg.conf".
So we go to the manual, and find the options via the options-index:

https://gnupg.org/documentation/manuals/gnupg/GPG-Configuration-Options.html#index-keyserver-1

https://gnupg.org/documentation/manuals/gnupg/GPG-Configuration-Options.html#index-auto_002dkey_002dlocate

All cool? ;)

Bernhard

Hi Fabio,

usually the internet manuals for the gpgconf options are the usual one for gnupg, dirmngr, gpg-agent and so on. For those options I don't know it by heart myself and will have to look it up in the next days.
(You could try to change the options and see what changes in the config files and then look it up in the manuals. :) ).

Best,
Bernhard

Hi Bernhard,

Thank you for your help.

About the manuals, I've found some manuals in internet but do not explain the meaning of some fields (ex: MECHANISMS, which mecanisms; why "Use keyserver at URL" since kleopatra works without that field,...)?
If you know some manual that could help me answering such questions, could you send me the link?

Thank you.

Regards,
Fábio

Hi Fabio,
the options that Kleopatra is using usually come from the tool "gpgconf",
if you call it, you'll see the real options used for the components, .e.g.

```
gpgconf --list-components
gpgconf --list-options dirmngr
gpgconf --list-options gpg
```

then you can lookup the options in the technical manual(s) where they are all documented.

Does this help already?

Best,
Bernhard
