As I recall, there is not a good public key server ... As I wrote in:
As of now, good keyservers are:
Here one must be careful not to create more than 2 sub-keys. If you do,
keyservers on pgp.net will corrupt your key. Also, only one keyserver can
be specified in $HOME/.gnupg/options.
Unfortunately, the following does not work any more:
The following will upload my key "A8061F32" to multiple key servers:
$ for xx in us es cz de dk uk ch net.uk earth.net.uk; \
$ do gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.$xx.pgp.net --send-keys A8061F32; done
---- (My additional comment here) ---
keyserver.net is proprietary service
mit one seems low bandwidth or firewall protected...
I hope this may help new web page.
