You don’t need to install any software on the Agent workstation, but you must pay attention to the following requirements:
- The Agent PC has proper audio devices
- You need a WebRTC specific License to make it work
- The Agent who logs in must have WebRTC Typology
- The Web Socket Service Port 8089 must be open on your server if you use the WebRTC services (see here)
