Great. Notice that we plan to make it easier to get started with apycot. 
Don't hesitate to tell us about things that would have enhance your experience 
(beside documentation ;)

by default, the apycotbot is trying to connect to the cubicweb instance,
which is expected to have the id 'apycot' in the pyro name server. 
First of all, did you set 

  pyro-server = yes

in the /etc/cubicweb.d/<your instance id>/all-in-one.conf ? This is 
necessary to let the apycotbot communicate with the cw instance.
Once done, and the instance restarted if you had to change this, your
cw instance should register itself to the name server with the id <your
instance id>. If this id is not 'apycot', you can tell to apycotbot the id
to use by specifying it in /etc/apycotbot.ini ::

  cw-app-id=<your instance id>

  # set the pyro name server host if you don't want broadcast query to locate it
  # or if it can't be located by the broadcast query.

then restart the apycotbot, and you should now be able to start some tasks using
"apycotclient start".
