I'm using Siemes CardOS 4.3b version smartcard with pkcs#11 library of opensc and with "pcsc" deamon for smartkart logon process. Additionally work with Firefox, thunderbird and nss tools. But I can't configure the coolkey and ESC desktop smart card manager.
I was tried pkcs#11 library of coolkey but. The library doesn't access my smartcard.
I want to support simens cardOS 4.3B.
