Extend Windows XP's Clipboard with Network Clipboard and Viewer

If you have ever copied something to Windows XP's Clipboard while working on one computer and then wished that you had the same thing on the Clipboard on another computer on your network, Greg Shultz has a solution for you.

If you have ever copied something to Windows XP's Clipboard and then wished that you had the same thing on the Clipboard of another network computer, check out Network Clipboard and Viewer from Interdesigner Software Development. Once you have installed and properly configured this tool to work with your computers, user accounts, and firewall, the Network Clipboard and Viewer is easy to use.

The computer where you install the tool becomes the server. You can use it to send the current contents of the Clipboard to another computer, as well as retrieve the Clipboard's contents from another computer. In addition to this base feature, the Network Clipboard and Viewer has a host of features and settings; for instance, the extensive Help system includes step-by-step tutorials and a FAQ.

You can download Network Clipboard and Viewer and experiment with it using the 30-day free trial. If you decide to keep it, you can register the single-user edition of the software for $24.95, or additional users at extra cost.
