Difference Windows and Linux

I have encrypted a zip file on a Windows machine and send it to a Linux machine. The decrypted file is different from the originated file. What can cause this ??

Hi Dirk,

different how? Note that if you zip text files, the zip application may take the different line ending conventions of windows and GNU systems into consideration.

But the zip file itself should be the same.

Best Regards,

I also thought so but the extracted file is 2 k bigger. I also tried to encrypt a file from a linux server with the correct key. That also won’t work.

please run a checksum on the file, to exclude that some implementation properties of the file system affect the size calculation.
