PCoIP Clipboard Policy Settings

Setting

Description

Configure clipboard memory size on server

Specifies the server's clipboard memory size value in bytes or kilobytes, as selected. The memory size is in kilobytes if it is not configured.

The client also has a value for the clipboard memory size, which is always in kilobytes. After the session is set up, the server sends its clipboard memory size value to the client. The effective clipboard memory size value is the lesser of the client and server clipboard memory size values.

This setting applies only to Windows, Linux, and Mac clients on which Horizon Client 4.1 or later is installed, and to iOS clients on which Horizon Client 4.7 or later is installed. In earlier releases, the clipboard memory size is set to 1 MB and is not configurable.

Note:

A large clipboard memory size can negatively affect performance, depending on your network. VMware recommends that you do not set the clipboard memory size to a value greater than 16 MB.

Configure clipboard redirection

Determines the direction in which clipboard redirection is allowed. You can select one of these values:

  • Enabled client to agent only

  • Disabled in both directions

  • Enabled in both directions

  • Enabled agent to client only

Clipboard redirection is implemented as a virtual channel. If virtual channels are disabled, clipboard redirection does not function.

This setting applies to Horizon Agent only.

When this setting is disabled or not configured, the default value is Enabled client to agent only.
