I tested this whole day and couldn't find a solution...
so I wanted to archive same goal as described in this post:
I'm on windows (cygwin) machine A and ssh into linux machine B.
I hope to send some text from B directly to windows clipboard of A,
and so I can paste them into notepad or any other windows APPs,
without bothering a temp file...
what my test shows that what was sent over to /dev/clipboard or clip
via the revert ssh session (from B to A) was just belonging to that
ssh user specifically, meaning my current windows clipboard could not
be changed at all...here is the code to demonstrate the issue:
from cygwin terminal in windows machine A:
ssh to B with user user1;
//and sent some text to A:
ping@ubuntu1404:~/temp-transfer$ cat test-ls.md | ssh ping@machineA
"cat > temp.txt; cat temp.txt >> /dev/clipboard"
now in A I open notepad, press Ctrl-V, I don't see content of
test-ls.md, but just see those previous texts I copied manually in A.
now if I ssh into myself from A:
then I can see the file content of test-ls.md printed in the terminal.
but still, I can't make them in notepad.
so it looks like, the clipboard is per windows user. but the thing is
I'm currently logging in windows with user1 too.
guess there are something I don't understand here , but how do I
archive what I wanted? I hope to send the text to a clipboard that I
can just put in notepad with a ctrl-v ....
thanks in advance. still researching...
