copy & paste in VirtualBox remote console when running headless

One can run VirtualBox guest in "headless" mode and access it using Remote Destkop Protocol(RDP) client.
This is typical when VBox server is installed on Linux/Solaris where X-window stuff is not installed and users use
Windows to access the VM.

So, one can install OS into VBox guests using Remote Desktop client.(e.g. mstsc.exe)

Here's the setting. One lesser known feature here is that you can copy&paste into and out-of VM guest and your client.

Apparently, "VMware Workstation" still doesn't support it.

 

VMware Workstation Documentation Center

You cannot copy and paste text between the host system and the guest operating system
