How to Fix Unable to Copy and Paste to Remote Desktop Session

Unable to Copy and Paste is a serious matter for remote desktop users. It’s easy to move files for us from client desktop to remote desktop. but it’s not possible all time, we are unable to Copy and Paste sometimes for server configuration and from client settings.

Remote Desktop Protocol ( RDP ) is a proprietary network protocol from Microsoft for remote access to computers . It enables the transmission of graphic screen contents from a remote computer system and the provision of peripheral functions of a workstation (keyboard, mouse, audio input / output, video input and session-related data exchange such as text buffers ( clipboard ), printer coupling and file system provision ). The protocol defines the cooperation between a server component (in MS Windows Remote Desktop Services , formerlyTerminal Services ) and the client component. The service listens to the standard on port 3389 / TCP and 3389 / UDP . The use of UDP transmission is added to Microsoft from Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 (RDP version 8), but is not absolutely necessary.
