Description Joel Rangsmo 2016-03-06 09:13:47 EST
If remote-viewer connects to a host using the SPICE protocol and the remote host has the vdagent configured, automatic clipboard sharing is enabled.

This is not always a desirable behavior since the clients clipboard may contain sensitive information like credentials from a password manager.

I suggest that a feature is added in remote-viewer to enable/disable automatic clipboard sharing between the client and server. Such a feature exist in the spicy example client.
