Has anyone managed to used crypt successfully on dh? I’m trying to encrypt daily backup files before I have them emailed to me. Anybody have any suggestions?

I suggest using PGP or GnuPG.

The simplest way is probably to first encrypt the files using GnuPG or PGP, and then send them as attachments using mutt’s ‘-a’ option (or, less easily, using uuencode and mailx). Then, you can install PGP or whatever on your machine, and decode the files there.

Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense to run a perl script using Net-SSH on your local machine?
