I went through already.

PuppetDB 1.3.2 is not resolving simple curl queries such as: curl -H "Accept: application/json" http://puppetdb-server:8082/facts/server-name

I'm able to see the puppetdb dashboard @ http://puppetdb-server:8082/dashboard/index.html and I also reviewed the log @ /var/log/puppetdb/puppetdb.log but i don't find anything strange in there.

This is pretty old question. However let me answer it.

If you are accessing puppetdb from another host, there are few guidelines. From your question, I see that you are using PuppetDB 1.3. Please refer this page.
