I wonder why Copy/Paste is not working properly when accessing a remote computer through RDP.

Any help?

Thanks

There is a good how-to here: http://cutecomputer.wordpress.com/2007/01/03/howto-copy-paste-between-local-and-remote-desktop/

Clipbook needs to be showing in the processes.

On the PC you start start the connection on, before connecting to the remote PC, click on the Options so you can change some settings. Then on the "Local Resources" Tab make sure you have enabled the "Clipboard". If you also want to copy files from one PC to the other click on "More" and enable "drives". If you want to be able to do this with smart cards and USB drives too, also enable those options.

This of course will only work if the Remote PC itself supports this (I'm not sure if it works on XP and 2003 PC's, and I'm quite sure it won't work on 2000, but anything newer it should be fine).

Then if you want to copy files from one PC to another, you'll have to do that via network connections, and the tsclients drives are your local drives from which you can then select the file you want to copy (or vice versa if you want copy from the remote PC to yours). Be aware that if you are using an internet connection for this it'll probably be rather slow, unless both internet connections have fast upload speeds.
