Dear,

when I use the Console from Proxmox Webinterface, then a VNC-Console opens in a separate Window
Tight VNC. This java VNC hast 6 buttons - one of them is the cliboard. How it´s possible, to copy informations from the VNC-Window in the Windows Clipboard and from the Windows Clipboard into the VNC-WIndow (Container/KVM)? The commands CTRL+C/V not working and the options set "Copy/Rect" is on "yes"

Thanks

oh, you talk about 1.9? it should work on Linux containers (just mark the text, should be in the clipboard now).

Hallo Tom,

no this will not function:

I write text in the clipboard window and mark this with the mouse.
Now I click in the Window of the KVM machine and then I use the Key CTRL+V or ALT+V or CTRL+ALT+V or test with right-click on mouse - mothing will gone!

And then how I can copy the KVM-Information form the KVM-machine, what I see into the clipboard?

best regards

Detlef

Hi Detlef,
containers aren't kvm-machines. On the console from a openvz-container copy/paste work - on kvm not.

Hallo Udo,

thanks for your answer, so I must not longer search about this problem!

Do you have a tip for me, when I have NOT a network connection (SSH etc) and I cant use the clipboard in KVM/VNC, can I use qm / qemu to transfer a text-file from the KVM to the host?

Expl. I make ifconfig -a > /temp.txt and later a cat /etc/network/interfaces >> /temp.txt - and I like to transfer then the temp.txt to the host, so I can use for the forum here?

Thanks

Detlef
