The two example applications you can include in your sandbox are echoclient and echoserver.

mksbcommand, for example:

mysandboxis the name of the sandbox.
You can also check out an example application, for example,vagrant@jet-vm:~$ mksb -n mysandbox echoclient
echoclientis an example application. The source code and makefiles of
