Re: VNC viewers: Clipboard of host automatically sent to remote machine

Those who try to manage potentially malicious servers do so over IP KVM,
 in which the foreign server basically gets only inbound Keyboard and 
Mouse and outbound uncompressed pixels.

Feature or bug, vnc or ip kvm, the same behavior has a virtual box virtualized machine with shared clipboard. You can 
choose disabled, direction and bidirectional (by default)

Something to keep in mind, at least the beginners like me.

Just run in the guest and see your clipboard, sure there are more elegant ways of doing the same. (tested linux in 
linux with virtual box and linux in mac with vmware)

while true; do
  xsel -p
  xsel -s
  xsel -b
