Can we confirm that bidirectional copy paste won't work between Virtual box and host os? I have installed OpenBSD 5.9 in VirtualBox where it runs fine and I want to enable copy paste between guest and host os but it won't work. OpenBSD has its own way of copypasting, seems like it can't be done even if I make a shared folder which usually enables the gues os to copy and paste files and cache between the systems.

Requires hardware virtualization to be enabled. Versions 3.7 and later are supported. Guest Additions are not available yet.


Shared clipboard

With the Guest Additions installed, the clipboard of the guest operating system can optionally be shared


So, there is no shared clipboard support (unless someone gets around to writing and maintaining a guest addition).
