0 down vote favorite I have a question, it might be trivial, but I needed to check as I did not see an explicit information so far.

What is the default web server in Puppet Enterprise 3.3.2?

In all puppet lab documentation and in different forums, it is mentioned puppet uses WEBrick and one need to install Apache/Passenger or something similar to scale up.

Now my question is, is this applicable for Puppet Enterprise too. Because I can see the service it runs is pe-httpd.

So can I safely assume, I do not need to explicitly install Apache2 and say Passenger for scaling up [and those installations are needed only for open source puppet]

Yes, you can safely assume that Apache2 & Passenger are installed with PE 3.3.2. These are used to run the console in PE. If you are using FOSS Puppet, then you would need to replace the bundled WEBrick with Apache and do your own configuring for Passenger & Rack etc.
