Console access is served on the standard HTTPS port 443. Port 8140 is for the Puppet Master REST API, and in PE 3.x it expects the first component of the URL path to be an environment name. However, this port is only used by agents or services making REST calls to the master.

Navigating to https://IP should land you on the console login page.

Full details about the ports used by various PE 3.x configurations can be found here:

But there is nothing listening on port 443 although httpd and puppetmaster are both running. Do I need to enable the console?

Puppet Enterprise installes a `pe-httpd` service that handles the console. If there was already a httpd running on the machine, that would block pe-httpd from listening on port 443.

Also, the console must be enabled during installation --- but this selection is included with the default monolithic install.
