Cygwin - I would not suggest to use this. We have no idea on whether

descriptor/handle passing may have surprising effects .

The tcp line is what I use to debug on Windows. On my Unix box I run
watchgnupg --time-only --tcp 42042
so that I can work with the logs without resorting to strange Windows
tools. After changing scdaemon.conf you should kill scdaemon; gpg-agent
will start it as neede. Tetsing with gpg is okay, but you can also use
and then enter
to see all commands supported by scdameon. The "scd " prefix simply
routes the rest of the command to scdaemon.
scd help serialno
shows you help for scdaemon's "serialno" command.
