Local hardware (smart card, scanner) redirection needs an agent (native application) running on your computer to acees the local hardware. Please:

  1. Download the agent from your installation: http://localhost:8080/sg_agent.exe
  2. Run the agent and keep it running during the connection (you only need to run the agent once for multiple sessions).
  3. Click the "Open" button to open a new window (bridge.html) to communicate with the agent and keep it open during the connection.


You also need to add the "&smartCard=on" parameter to your websocket URL to enable smart card redirection. Use the "&passwordIsPin=on" parameter if you want to transfer password as the PIN of smart card.

If the green smart card icon is displayed in the traybar, the implementation was successful: sv_tray.png
