I just got a CCID USB reader with my digital signature...unfortunately I can't make it work
I installed pcsc-lite and libccid from ports...
when I plug-in the reader I can see this:

ugen0: <vendor 0x072f CCID USB Reader, class 0/0, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 2> on uhub4

then I do this:

apparently there is something wrong...looks like the ccid driver is trying to write to the USB device ? As far as I know you can't write to the reader, right ? And why is ccid trying to write at all ? I just plug-in the reader and start pcscd...
Could you help me guys, I just need to use my digital signature with firefox...
thank you
