2.1. Using Smart Cards

You can log in to a server from Oracle Virtual Desktop Client by inserting a smart card into a smart card reader attached to the client computer.

You can use smart cards with Oracle Virtual Desktop Client for the following tasks:

See the Sun Ray Software Administration Guide for more details about using smart cards for these tasks.

To enable Oracle Virtual Desktop Client to use smart cards, select the Enable Smart Card check box on the Smart Card tab.

If the client computer has more than one smart card reader attached, you can select a smart card reader for hotdesking and for use by applications. The available smart card readers on the client computer are shown in the Smart Card Reader list box. Select a smart card reader from this list.


Your administrator might need to enable features such as hotdesking and using a smart card with applications.
