First off, let me say that I'm loving this distro. I was using Slax for years on flash drives, but it was really beginning to show its age in the past few months. A buddy introduced me to Porteus and I haven't looked back. I use it at work, on shared computers when I'm travelling, and even have a few of the students where I teach using it both in and out of the classroom. Many thanks for this great distro!
Now, onto the question. I have an encrypted save file that I use on my own flash drive. It works great. The problem is, I'd like to decrypt it and transfer it over to another drive for a student (to save me 2 or 3 hours of configuring his setup from scratch). I've tried the advice here; https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=1840
Code: Select all
openssl aes-256-cbc -d -in /path/to/encrypted.dat -out /path/to/decrypted.dat
with no luck. It always returns 'bad magic number'. I know that I'm not entering the wrong password, because I can boot into my install with the encrypted save file just fine. I've also tried decrypting the file via the Porteus Settings Center, but it also tells me that the password is incorrect. How can I resolve this?
Many thanks in advance.
