Has anyone used smart cards successfully with blast? Any issues with it? Did you use the access point or a security server? Is the set up the same? I cannot find any documentation on it.
Yes but that comments ("must support everything pcoip supports like smart cards and printers") is specifically about native clients + Blast extreme. You were asking about the HTML client with Blast, which doesn't support all of the features that the native clients do. Blast is a protocol that is shared across multiple clients; it was first used with the HTML client but is now also used by native clients.
>>Can you explain what a native client is? Like a windows client?
Yes. Native Horizon Clients are installed on the client OS and can support Smart Card authentication. They are available for Windows, Linux, Android, Mac OS X and iOS etc.
VMware Horizon HTML Access Client just runs in the browser and does not require a native Horizon Client install.
The advantages of native Horizon Clients is that they can support more features such as Smart Card authentication and other rich user experience features.
