    Hi all :)
    Have some problems with access to my corporate network - standard config for Windows consist from smartcard reader drivers + Cisco VPN Client.
    As card reader I use Athena ASEDrive IIIe.
    Mac (Leo) include preinstalled drivers for this reader.
    From Athena's support have got "MAC OS-X PKCS#11 library for ASECard Crypto" - midlleware software.
    After that in Keychain Access utility I can see all certificates from my smartcard.
    But, when I try to configure access from Cisco VPN client - try to select Certificate Authentification - I don't see my certificat - list is empty.

    You can see this in attachments.

    What I do incorrect :confused: or, I need any additional software my be :(?

    Any Luck?

    I'm having exactly the same problem. I have imported my certificates BUT when I go to configure a Connection Entry, none of my certificates show up in the pull-down menu for "Certificate Authentication".
    Just wondering if you've figured away around this problem.

    I have had no luck trying to connect to my work server using the Cisco VPN client 4.9.01 (0100) using the security code generated from a RSA token.
    My iMac is on OS 10.5.6

    Incredibly I am able to connect to the work server on XP Pro in VM Fusion but the connection is through IE running through (?) Citrix.

    I would much prefer to just connect directly from the Mac - any help please???

    Cisco VPN Doesn't See SmartCard Certs

    I'm having the same problem. Anyone figured this out. If I can get this licked, I'll be MS free! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The problem is that Cisco VPN client does not support certificates from smart cards. No way. I used VPN Tracker 6 to overcome this issue. The product is worth every penny :)

    I have a question for you, though... I am searching for the same PKCS#11 library for MAC, can you tell me where I can find it? At least which email I should ask to? :)
