OK that was because DSA is disabled by default in OpenSSH 6.7.

So now locally I have openssh-7.2p2 and gpg 2.1.12.

The server only has gpg 2.0.19 though, is that a problem?

When running the attached script, I get this error:
Warning: remote port forwarding failed for listen path /home/scripty/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent

(and then gpg2 on the server fails)

I don't understand. Is gpg-agent supposed to be running already on the server?
Or is the script supposed to create the S.gpg-agent file? Why does it fail then?

I didn't expect so much trouble with this :(
