If you are having trouble installing, configuring, or using DACS, your first step should be to make sure that you are using the most recent release of DACS. We are pleased to offer basic consultation and assistance with DACS at no charge. There is normally no charge for dealing with bugs and deficiencies in the open source release.
Professional technical support packages are available to help you to deploy, configure, evaluate, customize, and administer DACS. All technical support is provided by members of the DACS development team, the people who know DACS best. A wide range of professional services are also available.
Like many other open source licensed products, technical support subscriptions, together with revenue from consultation and customization projects, fund DACS development work. DACS cannot continue to exist without financial support from its user community. If you are using DACS, please consider purchasing a technical support package.
We provide cost estimates for more complicated problems.

We have worked with many system administrators and developers to incorporate
DACS functionality into their software,

If you need help or have a question about DACS, whether it can be used to solve a certain problem, or if you would like to suggest a new feature or improvement, we would like to hear from you!
We are especially interested in reports of bugs and security-related weaknesses. If something doesn't work as documented, or if the documentation is incorrect or incomplete, please let us know!

All correspondence will be handled confidentially.
