As organisations move to PCoIP for a richer end-user experience they start to face configuration dilemmas when trying to simulate RDP existing features. One that I have been asked few times in the last month or so is about Disabling Copy & Paste in PCoIP.
It is possible to disable copy/paste changing the virtual channel configuration. VMware has integrated PCoIP protocol into the VMware View Client and the View Agent while still providing backward compatibility for RDP and RDP virtual channels.
The solution is rather simple. Use the PCOIP.ADM template and create a new GPO. Then set the following:
Computer Configuration –> Admin Templates –> PCoIP Session Variables –> Not Overridable Admin Settings –> Virtual channels Set it to Enabled and enter the unauthorized virtual channel list: mksvchan
Optionally, add the following key into Windows HKEY_LOCAL –> SOFTWARE –> Polices –> Teradici –> PCoIP–> pcoip_admin –> pcoip.vchan_unauth_list –> mksvchan
