linux rdesktop clipboard problems Windows 2008 R2/Win7

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:21 pm

At first glance, I tried to add the options like following

rdesktop -r clipboard:PRIMARYCLIPBOARD


rdesktop -r clipboard:CLIPBOARD

Neither of them worked for me.  I even compiled and installed the newest 1.7.1 version rdesktop,  still noting.

Finally, I found the problem. It is not linux issue, it not a version problem, it’s nothing to do with linux. Instead, the problem was from the windows side. It was caused by the rdpclip.exe( RDP Clip Monitor) in my remote windows box. I killed rdpclip.exe and restart it, everything just works fine.

how to restart rdpclip.exe in windows :

kill rdpclip.exe by using task manager
type rdpclip.exe in start window and run.
