In the RDP app, click Show Options, go to the Local Resources tab, and share the clipboard. That should do it.

Hi Gsquared,

Maybe I should have phrased differently, what I mean was, how do you copy and paste from VPN session to your host session(laptop).

For example, when you work from home using VPN connection.

You sure about this?....Have you done it?....apparently, it's not working for me or I am not sure if you understood my scenario.

If you have done it, please let me know exactly how....normal ctrl x or ctrl c won't work.

Thanks,
SueTons.

for me, a VPN session just gives me an ip and DNS services on my work LAN so i can see all the servers on the lan.
so if i open my SSMS and connect to a server on the work LAN, it's transparent and cannot affect the clipboard.

As Gsquared mentioned, if you are using an Remote Desktop Protocol connection, syncing the clipboard is an option, and as i remember it, you can only cut copy paste text, not objects or images.

are you using RDP?

Yes I am using RDP after I connect to my desktop using VPN connection.
My work desktop is a VDI and I don't have SSMS installed on it.....so, from my desktop I RDP to each server. So, if I am physically at work what you suggest would work for me to copy something from remote server to my desktop, however, if I am at home and using VPN connection, there is another layer there and I cannot copy anything from server to my personal laptop. Maybe, it might be company security/policy settings.

Anyway, I will try your suggestions and keep you posted.

Thanks guys,
SueTons.

Hi Lowell & all,

I've tried what you suggested and it does not work for my scenario. I am able to copy the data from remote server to my work desktop however, not to my laptop which I am using to connect to my work.

If anyone find any additional information, please keep me posted.

Thanks,
SueTons.

I have used several VPN clients and have had no issues. What VPN software are you using? Have you checked with your IT team to determine if they have something enabled in your VPN layer?

It might be a policy enforced by your system administrators. It's not in the VPN, but in the RDP settings.
I'm under the same restrictions here.
I work around it using ledelog, which is basically a sort of "private" pastebin.

Hope this helps
