After finally receiving my NK 3C-NFC, I tried to use it on my Linux work machine, where I have no USB-C port, but a connected NFC smart card reader.
Using pcsc_scan, the NK is detected, although it seems a little inconsistent:
- When I am not putting a finger on the key when putting it on the reader, it immediately disconnects again. Is this expected behavior tying into a ‘touch-confirmation’ feature?
- Every once in a while, the key is not showing up in pcsc_scan at all any more, then the only thing to bring it’s NFC back seems to be to connect it to my phone’s USB-C port for a short while.
However, even if pcsc_scan reports a stable NFC connection,
nitropy list is not showing any keys, even when starting it with sudo privileges.
Has anyone insight into what might be cause for the unreliable NFC connection?
Are there people out there who have successfully used a NK-NFC with a Linux NFC reader?
