GnuGP and Key Creation

I'm trying to generate a key on my AIX UNIX server.  GnuGP v1.2.1
When asked to collect more entropy, I type random characters....and I
type....and I type....and I type.

It says it only needs 120 more bytes.   GnuGP never comes back.  I have to
CTRL-C out.

I found some docs that say it takes a long time if you are a remote user.
How long?  Hours? Days?  I don't have access to the actual server so I'm
using telnet.

Any ideas?

TIA:
Scott
