Description (partial)


When using multiple smart cards on a PC, the tunnel will establish, but it will be torn down if *any* of the smart cards are removed. 

This is not the intended behavior of the VPN client software. 

The client will still trigger this error when a card not containing the cert used to connect is removed:
