Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Clients are Windows XP, Servers are 2003 and 2008.

Despite the option to share clipboard always being checked, occasionally the clipboard will not be shared between the two sessions. I can ctrl-c and ctrl-v both inside the remote session and inside the client, but when I try to copy from the server to the client or vice-versa, it fails.

Is there another setting in addition to the option in Remote Desktop Connection to change it?

I've ran into this issue now and then and it's drove me crazy. Some times restarting the clipboard service seems to flush it out. I just found this interesting blog which is a good read about why this happens.

Good read. Thanks for the help! Unfortunately I'll leave this question unanswered as I'm unable to upgrade these corporate machines beyond the XP family. –  Diablomarcus Apr 7 '11 at 17:59
