What is clipcast?

Clipcast is a multi-platform network clipboard.

It works as follows:

  • You paste your clipboard content into an icon (which is optionally integrated into your windowing system like Gnome Panel or Windows Taskbar)
  • The content is then send encrypted to a set of other clipcast instances
  • Each instance puts the content into their own clipboard

Veeeery convenient, if you have more than one workstation on your desk.

Available platforms at the moment are: native X11 (Xt) and Windows. Mac OS X, Gnome and KDE to come.


On the first computer (here: Unix/X11 with ctwm)

(3) Place the cursor in a text field and press Ctrl-V (or whatever method you prefer to paste text in Windows)

(4) On Windows, the clipcast icon is here, in case you want to copy text from the second to the first computer.
