puppet nodes I am running are also on ubuntu server 12.04. I can connect
any of the nodes on a wireless or LAN connection. When I switch my node to
a Verizon mobile 3g or 4g device I run "puppet agent -t" and I get the
err: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Connection time out -
warning: Not using cache on failed catalog
err: Could not retrieve catalog; skipping run
err: Could not send report: Connection timed out - SSL_connect
Before I got the message there was a long pause about 20 minutes long
trying to do the update.
I can download and install packages with the 3g connection using apt-get
install. I can access webpages including secure pages using Lynx. I can
ping the Puppet Master.
I wanted to make sure I was getting through to the Puppet Master so I
removed the certificate from both the Puppet Master and the Client. Then I
ran "puppet agent -t" and the certificate was signed and I can see it again
on the Puppet Master and the client.
I checked port 8140 to see that it is open in Amazon, and it is. There is
no firewall enabled in the instance itself.
Next I limited the puppet update to only one trivial module and nothing
Lastly, I connected a node that is on a desktop version of Ubuntu 12.10 and
connected my Verizon device. I had the similar behavior. The system paused
for 10 to 20 minutes like before then gave me the message:
Error: Failed to apply catalog: execution expired
Error: Could not send report: execution expired
Since I have little experience with puppet or these devices, I suspect the
device has some sort of interrupt or time out on the device that causes
problems with the puppet process.
Anyways as far as I can tell the only thing I cannot do with this
connection is update puppet.
