In the later versions of puppet we need to enable the pupet server. Check if this is done.

Only starting the puppet server & services will not work we have to enable the server as well. 

Following command is for starting the server :

puppet resource service puppetserver ensure=running

This command is to enable the server.

puppet resource service puppetserver enable=true
