Final Remarks

Join the discussion

You can get in contact with the Cuckoo developers and users through the official mailing list kindly provided by The Honeynet Project or on IRC at the official #cuckoosandbox channel.

Our mailing list is mostly intended for development discussions and sharing of ideas and bug reports. If you are encountering an issue you can’t solve and are looking for some help, go to our Community website.

Please read the following rules before posting:

  • Before posting, read the mailing list archives, the Cuckoo blog, the documentation and Google about your issue. DO NOT post questions that have already been answered over and over everywhere.
  • Posting messages saying just something like “Doesn’t work, help me” are completely useless. If something is not working report the error, paste the logs, the config file, the information on the virtual machine, the results of the troubleshooting, etc. Give context. We are not wizards and we don’t have a crystal ball.
  • Use a proper title. Stuff like “Doesn’t work”, “Help me”, “Error” are not proper titles.
  • Try to use, or similar services to paste logs and configs: makes the message more readable.
  • The community website uses Markdown syntax. So please read the Markdown documentation before posting.
