    this is kind of flaky if I remember correctly, if you use the java based viewer it copies the clipboard contents and lets you paste it to local pc, its kind of convoluted, i've had mixed results either way

    Hi coopstah13,


    Thanks for your advice.


    I'm running TightVNC Viewer on Knoppix 5.1.


    I can move the mouse pointer over the text but unable to highlight it. I don't know whether it needs key combination.
