Step 4: Configure the Relay Services: #
- In the 3CX Relay Services window, in the Relay Host field, enter the FQDN of your 3CX server.
- Enter 8801 in the Relay Port field.
- Enter the JWT public key you took from VoIPTools Relay services in the Public Key text area. Click here to know more.

- If the ‘3CX Emergency Notifier’ is successfully able to communicate with the Relay services that run on the 3CX server, a Success message box appears. Click OK. If the test fails, you will not be able to continue until communication with the relay is established.
- You must set the Relay Port to 8801.
- If the Relay test fails, you cannot continue the installation until you establish communication with the Relay. If your Relay test failed then confirm the following conditions,
- Confirm you have the correct firewall port open (default TCP 8801) on the 3CX server and the firewall protecting the 3CX server.

- For Example:
- Format 1: 192.168.5.0/24 which means that the IP range is from 192.168.5.0 to 192.168.5.24
- Format 2: 192.168.5.0-192.168.5.24 which means that the IP range is from 192.168.5.0 to 192.168.5.24
- For Example:
- At the footer of the Locations page, click Save.
