    481 ==== Final Step: Enable Exiting in your torrc configuration
    482 
    483 To become an exit relay add the following configuration line in your torrc configuration file and define your [https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en#ExitPolicy exit policy].
    484 {{{
    485 ExitRelay 1
    486 }}}
    487 The exit policy defines which destination ports you are willing to forward. This has an impact on the amount of abuse emails you will get (less ports means less abuse emails, but an exit relay allowing only few ports is also less useful). If you want to be a useful exit relay you must **at least allow destination ports 80 and 443.**

    491484As a new exit relay - especially if you are new to your hoster - it is good to start with a reduced exit policy (to reduce the amount of abuse emails) and further open it up as you become more experienced. The reduced exit policy can be found on the following page:
