How can I share my clipbook with other machines?

A. Windows NT machines have a built-in Clipbook server service which allows other machines to use its clipbook and this is enabled as follows:

  1. Start the Services Control Panel Applet (Start - Settings - Control Panel - Services)
  2. Select ClipBook Server and click Start
  3. You can also click Startup and set to Automatic so the service will start at each reboot.
  4. Click Close

You can also start the service from the command line by entering the command

C:\> net start clipsrv

or

C:\> net start "clipbook server"

You can then copy your data to the clipboard as normal by pressing Ctrl + C, PrtScn or Alt + PrtScn (to only copy the current window).

  1. Start the clipboard viewer (Start - Programs - Accessories - Clipboard viewer)
  2. From the Edit menu select Paste and enter a name that this data will be known as (for example Cat, though not if its a picture of a dog :-) ) and check the "Share Item Now" box
  3. Just click OK to the next dialog which is about starting an application

From the client perform the following:

  1. Start the clipboard viewer (Start - Programs - Accessories - Clipboard viewer)
  2. From the File menu select Connect
  3. Enter the machine running the Clipbook server service
  4. A window showing the machines list of clips will be shown
  5. Double click on one to display the data. You can then select Copy from the Edit menu to copy into the clients local clipboard
