I have host machine running Windows 7 and VmWare running Ubuntu in command line mode. When I am trying to copy content of command line of client machine to host machine - it is not working. There is only #^C sign appears in ubuntu command line. Is there a way to copy it?

As far as I know it is not possible to copy anything from client machine unless any GUI environment is installed. – RCola Apr 8 '12 at 22:04

Use Ctrl+Shift+C to copy

and Ctrl+Shift+V to paste

These are the commands for pasting into the Ubuntu terminal; however, it looks like you have to install VMWare tools on the guest machine as well as the host.
