    It worked great for the first month but then it just randomly stopped reading my CAC. Not sure what the problem is but all I know It worked great for the first month but then it just randomly stopped reading my CAC. Not sure what the problem is but all I know now is that I have to buy a new card reader in order to access my email. I bought it because of its compact size and easy use. But I later found out that for thirty dollars. It was a waste of money. Love the compact size but hate the cheap plastic.

  • First CAC Reader (Navy/Mac)

    I just bought this USB based CAC Reader and had it set up in about 10 minutes. I am running an iMac with OS X Yosemite. The comput I just bought this USB based CAC Reader and had it set up in about 10 minutes. I am running an iMac with OS X Yosemite. The computer didn't recognize the reader, but after a great tutorial on militarycac.com I was able to figure the whole thing out.

    The "CAC Enabler" program I went with was CACkey. There are links on the militarycac website. It is free vs. the "PKard" program that is $30.00.

    Through Safari I am able to log into NKO and NSIPS just fine, I am still tinkering with Firefox however. There are some issues with NKO and certain headers that don't show up, I'm not sure if it's a browser issue or the website itself.

    All in all, I think it's a good purchase as I've never had a CAC reader at home and this was easy to set up.
