GNS3 QEMU SPICE – Enabling copy and paste

The following needs to be added in the QEMU VM template (or node) additional settings/options:

-device virtio-serial -chardev spicevmc,id=vdagent,debug=0,name=vdagent -device virtserialport,chardev=vdagent,name=com.redhat.spice.0 -chardev spiceport,name=org.spice-space.webdav.0,id=charchannel0 -device virtserialport,chardev=charchannel0,id=channel0,name=org.spice-space.webdav.0

Source.

** Adding “-usb -usbdevice tablet” will fix strange mouse behaviour on Windows guest machines.

*** To copy from a Windows guest to a Linux host install the spice-guest-tools for Windows from http://spice-space.org. Source.
