Background - I work for the Air Force, and wanted to be able to check my email, and the Portal when TDY. I have a MacBook Pro, and I’m running Lion.
In my research I found that this card does not “automatically” work, I had to do some downloading of software, and change some settings on my computer. It was somewhat technical, but I got it figured out with the website militaryCAC.com.
Also – I only got it to work with the Google Chrome web browser.
Google Chrome, militarycac.com, a lot of patience, and I got it work.
Worked right out of the box. Works with later editions of Lion to 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. Safari and Opera browsers limits accessing certain government sites - a problem easily circumvented by either adding the required java updates or switching to google Chrome(tm). Apple store has the lowest total price as of 12/11. This is compact enough to lose, and it is not child-proof. Wish it was $10 more and made of some tougher material. It would be 5 star in that case. Highly recommend this if you are operating Lion to Leopard, it works, and is cheaper and faster (shipped in two days to East Coast) then trying various unreliable third party solutions.
