ActiveGate version 1.175+ has the plugin module installed by default.
To run ActiveGate plugins, you need to install the ActiveGate on a host that has access to your remote technology.
- Sign in to Dynatrace and go to Deploy Dynatrace.
- Click Install ActiveGate in the Install ActiveGate to extend your monitoring section.

After successful installation, you should see two running services:
