No -- but they do produce a freeware version you can compile from source on most Unixoid systems. > My question would be what version of PGP available for FreeBSD would be most > compatible with the version I have on my WinXP machines?

It's a reimplementation of the PGP software under the terms of the GPL, since NAI and now PGP Corporation seemed to be heading towards a more restrictive licensing scheme on newer releases. As the file formats etc. for PGP are an open standard, you should be able to use any of the popular Unix implementations more or less interchangeably Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 26 The Paddocks Savill Way PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Marlow Tel: +44 1628 476614 Bucks., SL7 1TH UK
