Which network ports does ActiveGate use?

The incoming/listen ports used by each ActiveGate type are listed below:


ActiveGate Type Default port Description
Environment ActiveGate 9999 For communication with OneAgents
Cluster ActiveGate 9999 For communication with OneAgents and other ActiveGates
Cluster ActiveGate 8443 Must be open for HTTPS communication with a Managed node
Environment ActiveGate 8443 Must be open for HTTPS communication with a Managed node in case there is no Cluster ActiveGate or Environment ActiveGate cannot reach Cluster ActiveGate.

The port 9999 that is used for communication with OneAgents and other ActiveGates can be manually re-configured in the ActiveGate custom.properties file.

For Dynatrace Managed, ActiveGate must have network access to other services as well on specific ports, based on your deployment scenario.
