How to enable copy and paste between Windows machine and vncviewer viewing a Linux vnc session


Ever wonder why you can't copy and paste from and to vncviewer that is viewing a vnc session from a Linux machine? It's likely that the vncconfig program is not running to handle your clipboard transfer. If you are seeing that you are unable to copy and paste from your vncviewer, run this command at the Linux machine command line window through your vncviewer that is viewing your Linux vnc session:

vncconfig &

If you want to run this command in the background without the little window with the settings appearing, use this command instead:

vncconfig -nowin &
Once vncconfig is running, close your vncviewer and reconnect it again.
