Re: Cygwin ccrypt differs to linux ccrypt

Il 6/28/2013 10:52 AM, Chris Mingay ha scritto:
Hi all,

Up to date Cygwin running on Windows 2003 Server with ccrypt version
1.10 (up to date)

Up to date Ubuntu 12.04 with ccrypt version 1.9 (up to date, according
to apt-get)

I've encrypted a file using ccrypt in Cygwin and I am unable to
decrypt it on the linux box (Ubuntu 12.04). I am able to decrypt it on
my Windows 7 box which also runs cygwin.

I'm looking for confirmation as to whether this might be considered
normal behaviour? I understand if this is the case, but I am unable to
find written confirmation anywhere regarding it.


Hi Chris,
does the reverse works :
Crypting on Ubuntu and decrypting on Cygwin ?
