Not able to copy/paste text between RDP sessions in Windows 7

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate PC which I connect to via RDP from all over the country.
This is just upgraded from Vista where I used to have the ability of copy and pasting text and links between two the local pc and my remote workstation.
After upgrading to Win 7 this is no longer possible.

I must admit that I also was going from Panda Managed Office Protection Antivirus to Trend Micro so I don't know if this could be an issue.

as far as i know this is only implemented from vista. so if you are trying to do it from a previous os it will not work.

Just tested it here using an XP client and it should work with no issues XP to win7 and viceversa.

I know it sounds stupid but does cut and paste work OK on the workstation when logged in locally? I have seen the clipboard pack up until the next reboot when windows has a resource issue.

In terms of AV clients I would think that if the connection is OK then its a local operation in RDP which AV normally allows.
