Installing Finch is easy—just head over to our downloads page
and select the version of Finch which matches your Operating System (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux).
Linux users may find that the .deb file requires root permissions to install properly. If that is
the case then simply run
dpkg from the command line using sudo:
$ sudo dpkg -i ~/path/to/finch-setup.deb
Forwarding your first site
When you first sign in via the app you’ll simply be given the option to type
or paste in a local URL—in exchange you’ll get a Finch one which will
be publicly available over the Internet. You can’t configure much at this stage
but can either skip this site or edit the site you create on the next page.
