Please compile and package rdesktop with the smart card option.
Last modified: 2014-11-03 10:52:05 EST
Description of problem: When using rdesktop to remote into DoD systems the remote system requires the use of a smart card. The current packaged version of rdesktop was not compiled with that functionality.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Additional info: I think when you do the ./configure that if you use --smartcard that it will add this functionality. I had to compile from source yesterday and I think it was that easy.
I believe this was remedied a while back.
