How to acces a smart card reader connected to a Windows 2003 server
Posted on 2008-10-28
I developed and installed a java application on a Windows 2003 Server machine. For security puporse , this application has to access a smart card inserted in a reader which is itself connected to the server.
The problem is that the application is not seeing any smart card reader.
The reader is Omnikey CardMan 6121. The smart card device redirection is disabled.
Furthermore i tried to access the reader using the Diagnostic tools (installed on the server) provided by Omnikey. The Diagnostic tools behave as if there was no reader connected to the server machine (just as the java application).
When I enable the smart card device redirection, both my application and the card dignostic tools are able to acces the smart card reader connected to the TERMINAL but not the one directly connected to the SERVER.
How could I actually access the smart card reader connected to the windows 2003 server machine?
