View Full Version : [all variants] Omnikey 4040 + VPN

December 4th, 2008, 03:42 PM

I have a Thinkpad Lenovo T61 with an Omnikey 4040 smart card reader (PCMCIA).

$ lspcmcia

It lists correctly the device (Can't copy the output because it's my father's laptop)

I tried gnugp and poldi-ctrl, they saw the device, and knew if the card wasn't plugged. But when I plugged the card, it says: "No such file or directory."
I think there's something with the encryption (pkcs#11) or so (as much as i know a card has a "filesystem" aswell, and maybe it can't be read, because can't decode it.) (I installed the packages I think, but definitely I missing something)

If this problem could be solved, my father could switch from xp to ubuntu (he needs the card reader for VPN to connect to his company's network)

Thanks for your help!
