The "cutoff" is simply a value that is used to prune branch-and-bound nodes whose lower bound is above the cutoff, because it's guaranteed they won't have a better solution. It usually corresponds to the objective function value of the best solution found so far.
As for the infeasibility, this is an old issue in Couenne: its branch-and-bound interface is Cbc and apparently it doesn't accept all solutions that are found by Couenne's heuristics. We added code to save those solutions anyway and you should find that solution in a .sol file.

Hello, using Couenne to solve my MINLP problem, i got this message:
Couenne: new cutoff value 6.1115973590e+001 (89.484 seconds)
What doest this "new cutoff" value means? I know that this value, is exactly the value of my obj function at the solution point.
