Enter your administrative PIN in the new window and type your new PIN twice (or the PIN you used before). The administrative PIN can be found on the printout, titled "Smart Card Access Rights", which you received along with you smart card (sample printout). Keep in mind that the minimum and maximum length of the PIN depends on your smart card model.
