Q. In Windows XP, is there a way to make the contents of the clipboard visible or available over a network?

A. You need to first make sure that the ClipBook service is started.  To do this, click on the Start menu and select the "Run..." option.  Type "services.msc" and hit Enter.  In the list of services that pops up, double-click on the ClipBook service.  If the "Startup type:" is set to "Disabled", then set it to "Manual" and click on the "Apply" button.  If the "Service status" is shown as "Stopped", click on the "Start" button.  If the service does not start, you will need to go through the same steps for first the "Network DDE DSDM" service and then the "Network DDE" service, then go back to the "ClipBook" service.

Once these services are started, you can access that computer's clipboard from any Windows computer by clicking on the Start menu and selecting the "Run..." option, again.  This time, type "clipbrd" and hit Enter.  This will bring up the ClipBook Viewer.  By default, you will be looking at the contents of the local machine's clipboard.  If you want to look at the clipboard of another machine that has the three previously mentioned services running, then you will need to select the "Connect..." option from the File menu.  Then type in the name of the computer to which you would like to connect.
