After much conversation with Gemalto and Barlcays, when using ThinOS even with the driver package installed in Citrix, you cannot use the integrated pinpad readers as they are a different class of device than a standard reader,
“Do you support the use of a secure PIN entry smart card reader that adheres to the PCSC V2 part 10 standard”- It appears ThinOS does not.
The solution we had to use for ThinOS clients (in our case the 3040’s) was to independently purchase card readers without the integrated pin-pad (The bank will only supply their standard ones) – in our case we ordered a ton load of these:
they work perfectly with the on-screen pinpad for the service.
Obviously the vendor (Gemalto/Barclays) cannot provide hardware support on the products the products they don’t provide, but they did confirm a compliant smart card reader (like the Dell KB integrated one), will work with the current releases of the Gemalto package.June 3, 2019 at 12:19 pm #49913ConfGenKeymaster

ReinerSCT readers with integrated PIN pad work perfectly fine with ThinOS.

Does it work with just smartcard=yes or did you need to add a specific line for the PinPad card reader redirection?
If an extra line is required, would you be able to share how to add it under WMS (no more .ini files for us)October 15, 2019 at 4:15 pm #50983RichleyParticipant

The only smartcard readers that work with Dell thinos on Barclays.net are PC USB-TR readers but Barclays do not like you using these due to perceived security issues. I can confirm that the Hitatchi Bio metric readers work with Thinos on Barclays.net. We are using these readers on Dell Wyse Thinos 3040’s for Barclays.net.October 15, 2019 at 4:20 pm #50984
Indeed, it was the answer from Barclays support as well… but unfortunately not possible to replace smarcards by biometric readers every time (when you have several clients using barclays services)… not counting their price which are too high to bear.
We have also found the Gemalto CT30 to be a good workaround, at least because it works 100% without problems with ThinOS.
But other security products have PINPAD readers and I would be good to have another way of using them (don’t understand why the virtual keypad couldn’t act in lieu of the physical keypad…)
Would a Wyse with Windows 10 IOT be able to run them without problems?October 15, 2019 at 4:32 pm #50985
The issue is drivers, on a Windows build (or IOT) If you have the driver package installed, they work as the “local OS” passes through to Citrix. However as we know the idea of ThinOS is you don’t have a full blown OS, and then the extra hassle of patching, antivirus, wsus, etc etc… the whole idea between using a thin client in the first place, otherwise you’d just use a fat PC.October 15, 2019 at 4:41 pm #50986
Yes, doesn’t seem to be a perfect option anyway… last question, would thinlinux be also working with Pinpad card readers?
Could be a good compromise with running a non-Microsoft OS and an OS that can run a generic driver ?October 15, 2019 at 4:52 pm #50987
Gemalto the vendor only support Windows/Citrix using Internet Explorer 32bit & Firefox 32bit, and it’s the Gemalto drivers/edit you need… but… it’s the passthrough from the terminal that’s the kicker. Windows IOT would passthrough as it would run the package, ThinOS 019 just re-directs using its own magic…getting Linux to do that job as an OS… I wouldn’t think so…
