puppet agent is installed as part of the puppet package on your client type

yum -y install puppet

that will install the agent

Hi There is no software on the client ?..I install the softwareon the Server (see the output in my first post)

If the instructions say ' for each client, set up access to the internet, install the puppet rpm',

then install the agent, that would make sense

but..we are talking deploying the agent on clients, how does a client know about puppet rpm ?

thanks in advance

Yes, you need to follow the instructions referenced above to configure the Puppet RPM repositories on each machine where you install the agent.
