Smartcard logon with remote desktop/terminal services




I am using smartcards for logon without issue. This also works via remote desktop/terminal services. However, the user is prompted for their PIN to unlock their private key again for the remote session. Is there a configuration option to open a "time window" for private key use, such that if the user is still logged into their local machine the remote machine will not prompt for the PIN

I've looked at the template for smartcard logons/users as well as the software from the manufacturer (ealaddin etoken). There is reference to caching of the private key on the HD, but that doesnt seem to do anything (other than moving the private key to a non secure container - bad idea..

Any help would be appreciated
