Hi,

A simple question, but could not find an answer.
When I use a RDP session to a remote machine, and in the settings I make sure the clipboard is selected, I cannot only copy text, but also complete files from local session to remote session en vice versa.
However, when I try to do this in a Citrix session to a remote machine, I can only copy text, but not a complete file.
The citix knowledgebase has this article http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX086028 which says "Copy and paste of files between local workstation and sessions or between two unique sessions is not supported.".
However, I cannot imagine that Citrix does not has this possibility, while using plain Microsoft it is possible.
Any ideas?
Kindest regards

While Citrix is an app that gets installed over a Windows Server, however it uses a different protocol for the communication between its clients and the terminal server. Windows uses RDP while Citrix uses ICA.

By design ICA doesn't support the copy of files from the client to the session or vice versa. Yet ICA excels in many other things if it might struck your mind as a question. ICA performs better over WAN, rendering media, flash and graphics, load balancing etc...
