    Hi,
    I try this version of 2x client for Chrome (10.6.1465) but i cant use the feature about clipboard support that it have been added newly.
    Could i ask you , please say me how i can use this feature?

    Hi Sahar,

    Clipboard functionality should work right out of the box.

    After you place an RDP connection using the Chrome client, you can freely just copy from your local machine and paste in the RDP session.

    If you are running into any problems using it, feel free to contact us directly at support@2x.com and we can have a look into it further.

    Thank you.

    Chris.

    Are you planning/able to develop a Chrome extension that allows for connections thru a public gateway? This would allow me to get my remote desktop on my HP Chromebook even outside the company’s VPN.

    Hi Ben, we will be supporting 2X connections which will allow you to connect using a public gateway. This function is on the product roadmap and should be release towards the end of Q1 / early Q2 2014. Thanks for using 2X,
    Charlie
