Description eric@christensenplace.us 2009-06-02 07:55:06 EDT
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.

Thank you!

I believe this was remedied a while back.
