You can try other versions of VNC - UltraVNC works cut and paste between Windows systems.

the kde's default vnc client(krdc i think its called?) support cut and paste, the thing is, you have to use Copy when the client is already open and then paste to the VNC window, the client does not care about any Copy command you made before its opened

nx from nomachine might help also, if access is from Unix to a windows server
try rdesktop.

Actually, I downloaded the real vnc client for redhat.  I wanted to be able to vnc to the console session.
the options are checked, it just isn't working.

actualy I thing it can't be doen through VNC, as it is a graphics (bitmap) oriented
protocol. X (nx, remote X) have a construct called pastebuffers. (yep more than 0),
the windows graphics manager has it to, so tools like rdesktop (local X, remote mswin) or
NX (both local & remote X =unix->unix, or local mswin remote X (windows -> unix))
can exchange these buffer contents.

Another posibility is to just use ssh, that's a plain window, and cutting & pasting is only local availble. If you work from a linux console, then using gpm should
enable local cut& paste. (and it should work for ssh sessions too then, no graphics
involved here).

On unix: ssh, openssh
On windows: putty + friends or a tool like copssh (is preconfigured install
for CygWin + ssh on windows this is meant to make windows an ssh server).
