If your Smart Card reader is not appearing when you open the Teradici PCoIP App;

  • Firstly check that “USB Devices” shows in the “Connections” menu - if not uninstall the App & go through App reinstall procedure, then come back and check again.

  • If “USB Devices” still doesn’t show the card reader, make sure it’s plugged in or try another USB port. Once plugged in, it should show up.

  • Put the smart card in the reader if it’s not in there already - it can stay in, no need to take it out and reinsert it - by re-inserting it this should trigger the Identity Agent to be displayed if its not displaying already.

  • Press “Connect”. If the Identity Agent pops up, you are all set. If not, press “Disconnect” and “Connect” a few times as that usually makes the Identity Agent display after a few tries

  • If that doesn’t work, try uninstalling the smart card device and its driver, then do another “Disconnect” + “Reconnect” to make it install it again.
