When our customers have a problem we usually connect to their server in order to investigate. Normally we use Remote Desktop or VNC for this. During this investigation I usually copy text between the server and my computer several times.
For one new customer we are using Remote Desktop and Citrix. The customer has disabled clipboard sharing "for security reasons". This will make supporting them rather difficult. (I don't just want to copy the odd word - usually it's large XML documents.)
I want to persuade them to enable clipboard sharing because it will mean we will be able to resolve problems for them much faster and without becoming extremely frustrated. I work better when I am not frustrated!
Is clipboard sharing over RDP insecure? We're allowed to transfer files to and from. Surely that's less secure than transferring text.
What can say to our customer to get them to enable it?
