How are smart card readers supported in RX-RDP, RX420(RDP), RX300 and LEAF OS devices?
The RX-series firmware and LEAF OS contain the PC/SC daemon and a set of smart
card reader drivers which allow the native (functional) redirection.
CCID-compliant smart card readers and numerous ACS (Advanced Card Systems,
Ltd.) smart card readers are supported with native redirection. Any number of
thin clients can start the terminal sessions with native smart card reader
redirection enabled. Please refer to RX300 or RX-RDP firmware Release Notes for a full list of supported smart card reader models.
The Native (UXP and RDP)
redirection type must be selected for the Smart
card readers device class in Peripheral
devices redirection settings group in the Peripherals section of Setup GUI to enable the native redirection
of smart card readers for RDP sessions (in RDP Client and
VERDE VDI Client operation modes).
The ‘certutil -scinfo’ command can be used inside the RDP session to verify
the operability of the redirected smart card reader and the smart card inserted
into the reader. With well working redirection it will ask for card’s PIN and
display the certificate stored on the card.
