Comment 6 Alparslan Ozturk 2008-08-15 15:07:00 EDT

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.

best regards.
