Hello Maykel,

You can run a local server that copies everything it receives to the
clipboard. Then set up ssh remote port forwarding and send clipboard
data to this port.

You need either netcat (nc) or socat as well as xsel, xclip or wl-clipboard.

$ socat TCP-LISTEN:6789,reuseaddr,fork EXEC:"/usr/bin/xsel -ib"

$ ssh user at example.com -R 6789:localhost:6789
Or set RemoteForward in your config.

copy on server:
$ uname -a | nc -c localhost 6789
$ uname -a | socat -u - TCP:localhost:6789
