I am looking for a remote support software that supports USB. As an admin, I only can use a PIV card for administrative actions, which the UAC prompts for. I need the remote PC to detect the PIV card that is connected on the viewer PC. Is this possible with Remote Utilities?
Could you please clarify if you mean that you need to run Remote Utilities from a portable USB drive? If this is the case, you can use Portable Viewer and Agent modules as they do not require installation and can be stored on portable drives.

Do you mean that you need the remote Host to detect the PIV card on the Viewer machine as an authentication method, i.e. to only allow connection for a Viewer with the card present and decline the connection for any Viewer machine without the card?
To clarify, I do not need it as an authentication method for the remote session, but as authentication to perform administrative actions on the remote host. For example, I need to restart a service. I need to open services as an administrator. When I do that, the User Access Control prompts me for authentication. Most organizations use a username and password for authentication. Ours does not. It uses a PIV card, which when detected, User Access Control prompts me for a pin. I need the remote host to detect the PIV card that is plugged in via USB in the viewer workstation. I want to say the proper term for that is USB redirection, but I am not sure.
