PGP Desktop Home - 99 UK pounds = 158 dollars.  Versions available for
Solaris, AIX, Linux, zOS, MVS/ESA at varying costs (and you really
don't want to know what it costs for a moderate zOS installation.)

If you're using it in a commercial environment (as I am) it is charged
per physical CPU on the box rather than by how many VCPU's you have on
the server. This is somewhat expensive to say the least.

By the way Karl, the PGP package you installed is merely a wrapper for
GPG - the free version of PGP.

When one person suffers from a delusion it is insanity. WhIf you're
going to blog, at least get your facts right.
en many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.
