Copy/paste fails in CoRD when multiple remote desktop sessions are active

Submitted by Jochus on Thu, 16/05/2013 - 21:40 | Posted in: Mac

I often ran into an issue with CoRD failing to copy/paste between my host machine and my remote desktop machine. This only occured when multiple remote desktop session were active. The clipboard chain gets broken and copy/paste between the host machine and the remote desktop stops working.

To solve this, you need to execute the following batch file on the remote machine:

@echo off
taskkill /IM rdpclip.exe /F
start %SystemRoot%\system32\rdpclip.exe

Yeah, I know. I'm currently trying JumpDesktop ( I'll post an update on my blog after I tried it for a while.

Unfortunately, it's not a free :-( ...
