I am a professional geek, working in enterprise data systems. I fill the role of systems engineer, architect, developer, project manager, etc... a one-stop enterprise IT kinda guy.

I develop in .NET, MVC, and IIS on Windows platforms; on *nix I favor to develop in PHP with some Cake.

For database systems I favor MSSQL, MySQL, and I'm moving into PostgreSQL for BI/ Warehousing.

Security is near and dear to my heart; a well-designed security system puts a satisfied smile on my face.

Scalability is important to me; planning for the future is one of my greatest strengths.

Thats me! Computer geek extraordinaire!

@ChrisS after a phone call with them, I'm beginning to think it's a version problem. They are running a very old version of GnuPG, and I am running the latest BouncyCastle libraries... I expect that is the problem.

There are some provisions for shell access, but I'd rather it be a push operation if I can swing it.

I do have the vmware tools installed on all the systems; I will reply back when I get a maintenance window and try this.
