Hi,
I am working with GE Capital International Services, while I was trying to generate the key
with gpg --gen-key command it is showing me following error.

sconsas01%/export/home/nchoudha[106]: gpg --gen-key

Please select what kind of key you want:

(1) DSA and ElGamal (default)
(2) DSA (sign only)
(4) RSA (sign only)

Though it does not stop here after completing all the features upto Passphrase it just finishes with
error as mentioned.
gpg: fatal: can't connect to `/var/spool/prngd/pool': Connection refused
secmem usage: 2272/2272 bytes in 7/7 blocks of pool 2272/32768

Please guide me how to resolve this issue.
