Smart-card installation on windows 2008 Terminalserver

Post by stuer » Mon Mar 28, 2011 10:35 am

Hello at all!

Our office works with windows 2008 Terminalserver and Thinclients as workstations and the problem of our administrator is, that he is not able to install the smartcard and all necessary software therefore on our terminalserver, so that all connected Thinclients can use the connected smart card or alternatively enebles them to authentify herself?!
(Ist es Möglich an einem Windows 2008 R2 Terminalserver R2 die Software und die Smartcard zu installieren sodass die angeschlossenen Thinclient die Online Einreichung durchführen können, oder sich dort authentifizieren können.)


Which possibility are there to use one smartcard for seperate Thinclients (Windows XP embeded)?!
(Welche Möglichkeiten gibt es an verschiedenen Thinclients (Windows XP) die gleiche Smartcard zu verwenden?)
Terminalserver is a Windows 2008 R2.

Thanks for all helpfull Feedback

I never tried with on a terminal server without citrix, but at least you have to install gemsafe-libraries (gemalto classic client) on the terminal server and the smartcard-reader-driver on the thinclient.
The client needs to give the smartcard to the server. On a normal Windows RDP-Client this is an option under local resources (lokale Geräte und Ressourcen).
