Final Remarks

Join the discussion

You can get in contact with the Cuckoo developers and users through the Community portal or on IRC at the official #cuckoosandbox channel.

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 Community 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.
