vncconfig from an open xrdp session on the server

Dear Red Hat,

This bug makes it an absolute nightmare to do remote maintenance!

Would one of our intrepid heroes please fix this for me?

Client 1:
   Scientific Linux 7.2 (RHEL 7.2 Clone)

Client 2:
   mstsc.exe 6.3.9600.16415 from Windows 7 Professional

   Fedora core 24, x64
   Xfce 4.12

Neither clipboard from Linux works or the clipboard from Windows.  Yes both are configured for clipboard and both work when logged into a Windows RDP )terminal services) server.

And the clipboard *IS* supported in xrdp as of 0.7.0.  See

     "The clipboard in RDP support several formats.  As of xrdp v 0.7.0,
      bitmaps are supported.  You can copy and paste images between your
      Linux or Windows client and xrdp server"

This is a nightmare.  Please fix as soon as possible!

Many thanks,

This also reproduces on Scientific Linux 7.2 and xrdp 0.9.0 as the server.  I had to upgrade the server to FC24 do to SL 7.2 randomly not recognizing my system drives, which I reported under

This really becoming a total pain in the neck (not my exact word).  I am having to manually type huge long activation codes into my software (typo city).

Hi Itamar,

Will do.

Thank you for the link.  I had no idea where it was.
