    This link is broken:

    Perhaps the MacClient does not exist anymore and this was just overlooked.
    If it does still exist, I want to check it out.

    Use ngrok service which is very simple,, no sign-up needed, no dependency, small size (in kb),
    and u r just a single command away!

    I can't start my kite:

    >>> Creating kite: [CTRL+C = Cancel]

    *** Kite creation failed!
    *** Error code: :Access denied">
    *** Try again later?

    What am I doing wrong?

    I have solved the problem. I found the hidden configuration file .pagekite.rc in the home directory and added the required info. After that it worked properly.

    *** Sorry, that domain ( is unavailable.
    *** If you registered it already, perhaps you need to log on with
    *** a different e-mail address?

    The link to the MacClient (the native Mac OSX client for PageKite) is still giving a 404.
