How to enable clipboard with VNC

I’m accessing my SLES11 (SP2/SP3) through VNC (on a XEN host). I’m not able to copy / paste between my Windows Desktop (Ultra VNC) and the SLES Server.
How can I enable clipboard Support?
Thanks
Wolfgang

I believe the VNC server installed with SLES11 uses TightVNC which
doesn’t provide clipboard support and you need to add autocutsel[1].

Unfortunately I’ve not found a pre-compiled package for SLES11 so you
will need to download and build it yourself.

HTH.
