Why is mit.edu keyserver so limited?

OK, I'm a pathetic newbie at this, I admit.  And I can't even really use
PGP because it crashes Eudora everytime I try to send my signature or
encode a message (some kind of kernel32 error).  But I've been trying to
get people's keys, and PGP 5.0's PGPKeys lets me look for new keys on
what I think is mit's keyserver, but no one's key is ever there. I don't
understand this.

    Whose keys are you looking for?  You'll find mine there.  You'll find
the keys for quite a few notable and not-so-notable people there.  Maybe
you want to take a look at one of the web-to-HKP keyservers that are out
there, so as to get an idea of what kinds of keys are showing up in your
searches?  See <http://www.pgp.com/keyserver/pks-toplev.cgi> for one
example of a web-to-HKP keyserver.

1. keyserver.pgp.com keine Verbindung mit Ken von AVM

Sorry, wenn ich dieses Thema hier noch einmal poste, aber hatte die
Group zu sp?t gesehen.

bin grad dabei PGP 8.0.1 in Deutsch auf meinem Rechner der unter
Windows XP Professionel Version 2002 ServicePack 1 zu installieren.
Auf diesem PC l?uft auch der Ken DSL ServicePC in der Version 2.01.30
2202-10-01

Das Problem ist folgendes:
Zum ver?ffentlichen meines Schlssels, sowie zum herunterladen des
?ffentlichen Schlssels eines Partners, wird ber ein PGP-Suchfenster
auf  ldap://keyserver.pgp.com eine Verbindung hergestellt. Diese
Verbindung klappt aber nicht. Es kommt die Meldung es ist ein Fehler
im Dom?nensystem. Die Hilfe sagt aus, dass die Verbindung nicht
hergestellt werden konnte.
Habe die Netzverbindung mit T-Online by call aufgerufen und dann kommt
diese Verbindung zustande.

Meine Frage hierzu, was muss ich einstellen in Ken, damit ich auf
diesen Schlsselserver komme.

Gr?e
Klaus
