How does Dynatrace EdgeConnect work and what firewall rules do I need for it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Dynatrace EdgeConnect is deployed in your local network(s) to act as an HTTP proxy between the Dynatrace platform and your protected network(s). Dynatrace EdgeConnect connects to Dynatrace SSO and your platform environment via 443 HTTPS/WSS and keeps a WebSocket connection open. See further information in our documentation.
Hi! May I check what the difference is between an ActiveGate and EdgeConnect? It seems they both forward data to the Dynatrace SaaS cluster.
Thanks for your question. Dynatrace EdgeConnect runs and acts as a dedicated http proxy to give Dynatrace SaaS and platform applications access to on-premise systems. An architecture chart is shown here.
