Smart Card authentication & Interactive Smart Card Login The term Smart Card Authentication refers to the ability to login to your local machine using a Smart Card and a PIN, and then access resources on a remote machine by passing this authentication information to that remote machine. Whereas Remote Smart Card Login is the ability to interactively connect to a remote machine that is currently sitting at the Login Desktop or Lock screen using this Smart Card authentication, and then enter your PIN upon being prompted by the Operating System, just as if you physically walked up to the remote machine and inserted your Smart Card. DameWare Development has once again risen to the challenge and proven to be a pioneer in the industry, becoming the first third-party remote administration software to provide Interactive Smart Card Login, as well as remote Smart Card authentication, using a Smart Card and Personal Identification Number (PIN) from your local machine. In version 5.5 and above, users of DameWare Development's software now have the ability to access remote machines using a Smart Card and PIN from their local machine. Also, unlike other remote administration tools that boast the ability to perform "Smart Card authentication", DameWare Development's software is the first (and as of this writing, the only) remote administration software on the market that offers Interactive Smart Card Login, as well as remote Smart Card authentication. This allows users of the our software to not only access a remote machine when a user is currently logged onto the desktop, but also the ability to access remote machines while they are currently at the Logon Desktop or Lock Screen, and then interactively Login by entering their PIN.

Step #2: Select the "Smart Card Logon" authentication method in the Remote Connect dialog. When the Password field changes to PIN, enter your PIN number into the Remote Connect dialog. Step #3: Now just click on the Connect button. If a Smart Card is not currently detected, the MRC software will prompt you to insert your Smart Card now.
