    l4zy, just export the certs to the web browser from your CAC at work, export those from the browser to a disk and put em on your PC. works for most navy sites except for the newer ones that require an actual CAC.

    Yea, I found one for $20, but the ActivClient is $60...I need it because my Reserve unit sends all the info for training schedules, etc. thru AKO.

    Option is under tools in the ActiveCard 2.2 utility. They probably use 6.0 on shore duty though so not sure if it is the same or even possible (yay for being on state of the art ships).

    It's available as part of a "home use" package that was distributed a while back.

    Highly recommend getting a USB one, the serial ones always gave me problems.

    That should work fine, unless you are running Vista... Then you have to find an integrated one. Good luck though.

    I'm running a different model USB CAC reader on Vista(64-bit even).
    Running the ActivClient software downloaded from NKO.
    Really easy to install.

    I quoted the specific model that he bought. Good grief. :squint:

    And I would know, because I have the same one, and I'm running Vista on one of my boxes at home, and it doesn't work, and I have yet to find a working driver. They can't even use them at work with Vista and SDC. So, Bleh. Shows what you know.

    Well, for whatever reason, the AF has always had a thing for buying Dell laptops that have them built in. And alot of the newer HP Desktops they are buying come with a USB keyboard with a built-in CAC-reader.
