Their are workaround provided by the interface but you may want to unlock it for good :

  1. Internet Explorer 6, 7 or 8
  2. Firefox 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5

    This will open the security manager.
    (Please note you can also reach that screen using the menu "Tool", select "Internet options" and then the "Security" tab)
  2. Select then "Trusted sites" in the top part of the screen, and click the "Sites" button. A popup will appear.
  3. Enter the begin of the url of your server, such as : "http://cms.myserver.com"
    (Note that it is prefilled if you do this manipulation while connected to Ametys)
  4. If your server is not secured (meaning that you connect throught http:// instead of https://) you must first uncheck the bottom check box.
  5. Now click on the add button : your server is now in the list.
  6. Choose ok on this dialogbox and ok on the pending one also.

The mention "Trusted site" should appear at the bottom of the screen when connected to the CMS.

Close now all your Internet Explorer windows and reconnect.

The clipboard access dialog box should not appear anymore.

(Please note this manipulation can be reversed by removing the site from the trust list - a restart is necessary -)
