I've looked everywhere for this but don't seem to be able to find a download link.
Is it still available ?

    Downloads for Debian, Fedora etc. I downloaded CLI_Linux_Debian_5.4.0 and it has multiple images inside, including fing-5.4.0-arm.deb

    Actually performing this process right now on my own Raspberry Pi.
    Walk through the steps in the link that @Pooh provided and it will install the CLI portion of Fingbox on your Raspberry Pi.

    OK I ran into a snag, My Pi v3 tells me
    [code][email protected]:~ $ sudo wget fing-arm64.deb
    --2019-08-31 10:07:05--  http://fing-arm64.deb/
    Resolving fing-arm64.deb (fing-arm64.deb)... failed: Name or service not known.
    wget: unable to resolve host address ‘fing-arm64.deb’[/code]

    I have a Raspberry Pi v3 running Buster, will the CLI run on that OS version?

    I was able to install the package not from an SSH connection to my RaspPi, but in connecting to it using VNC, opening the file manager, navigating to the folder where the package was extracted after it was downloaded from here.  Then right-click on armhf.deb file that was extracted and then left-click on 'Install Package'

    Once that finishes the install, open an SSH session and connect to your Pi.  After authentication and at the prompt, type:
    [code]sudo fing[/code]
    The application will begin searching your LAN and displaying resolved SNMP responses.
    Also:
    [code][email protected]:~ $ fing --help

    === Fing 5.4.0 - www.fing.io ===

    CLI options:

    Helper:
      -h [ --help ]             show this help message
      -v [ --version ]          show fing version
      --interactive             start the interactive mode

      -i [ --info ]             show network informations
      -n [ --netdiscover ] arg  run network discovery
      -s [ --servicescan ] arg  scan services on host/network
      -p [ --ping ] arg         run icmp ping on the hosts
      -T [ --traceroute ] arg   run traceroute on the specified host
      -w [ --wol ] arg          send wake on lan command on targets

    Command Options:
      -d [ --rdns ] arg         enable/disable reverse DNS lookups
      -o [ --output ] arg       use output setup for discovery/scan/ping
      -P [ --profile ] arg      use specific discovery/scan/ping profile
      -r [ --rounds ] arg       number of rounds for discovery

    So, having done all that, what did this give you that the Fingbox or Fingbox app doesn't?

    Will it be possible to change a raspberry into a fingbox running this software? Include into the app and periodically scan network, set alerts, block devices and so on? Or is it just a cli on-demand-scanner?

    @mozarella this isn't in our immediate plans. 
    We have some legacy linux packages for download in our CLI developer section. But we do not provide support from them other than the documentation here under CLI. There is a user guide on this page. 
    https://www.fing.com/products/development-toolkit 
    We're developing new up to date version for MAC/PC and this could be followed by more installation methods too depending how we get on!
    Let me know any other questions on this one!

    As of now, the Fing CLI for raspberry 0 is not available. Also, Fing CLI is different than Fing Desktop. Fing Desktop is created to replace the Fing CLI.
