I have two PC's both are Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit machines. My laptop will connect to my work PC, but my desktop will not. It is aware of my smart card, but when I try and connect it fails saying "The View Connection Server connection failed. Smart Card or Certificate authentication is required." Any one else had a problem like this?
That really is strange. You are using smart cards? I had limited success connecting by adding my certificate to certificate manager for the host name of the view server I was connecting to. I was able to connect once, but I accidentally bumped the card out of the reader while connected and now can not connect that way again. Have you tried connecting using credential manager?
I followed the steps describe in the blog provided by grossag. However I ended up with an error it didn't account for. After getting a list of accepted issuer and verifying my cert was issued by one of them, I got this error:
It turns out that vmware shares some settings with IE. Since I don’t use IE, I just reset all of my IE settings back to there default. Here are the steps I took to fix it.
1. Open IE
3. Internet Options
6. Check ‘Delete personal Settings’
Thanks for your help grossag.
