    Question How to use same personal key across multiple computers?

    I have an old computer that I fixed up, and I'd like to use it for my coding (right now, I'm working on debianizing the games at stabyourself.net. Don't worry; the liscense allows it!)

    I have already built a few on my main computer, and I'd like to sort of migrate my packaging to the old computer. Unfortunately, I would have to generate another key for the second computer, and I'd prefer not to do that. I know that you can import someone else's key, sort of as a "recognized person," but how do I import a key as one of MY keys? (P.S., I do have the secret password thingy. That's how I've been signing the packages, after all.)

    Any reason why you can't just do scp -r .gnupg targethost:?

    Lol, probably because I've never heard of that before.

    So... I execute that command on the machine I've already built stuff on? Do I need to export my keyfile first or something like that?

    Normally no, copying .gnupg is the only thing that's needed, executing gpg on the other host will pick up the keys as normal.

    Re: How to use same personal key across multiple computers?

    Okay... where do I find this file?

    Also, do I just type scp -r .gnupg targethost, then upload some file to the other computer, or do I need to do
    scp -r /home/james/.pgp/pgp.gnupgp 192.168.2.3
    ...or something like that?
