Does puppetdb require an ssl connection to operate?

Greetings All,

I decided to try and implement the puppetlabs-puppetdb and puppetlabs-postgres modules after I had both puppetdb and postgres installed and working on my puppet server. This was ill advised as it broke my working setup and no amount of re-configuring seems to be able to get things working again.

I finally pulled the manifest that "describes" my configuration, but now I cannot seem to get puppetdb working at all. My clients are giving me these kind of errors:

Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Failed to execute '/pdb/cmd/v1?checksum=2b3883d84fd2c7f9899bd6280247edbccc31cf15&version=4&' on at least 1 of the following 'server_urls':
Warning: Not using cache on failed catalog
Error: Could not retrieve catalog; skipping run

I have crawled through the puppet docs to try and fix my configurations, but I can't seem to get things operating properly.

It seemed pretty clear that I did not need to configure the SSL portion of puppetdb, but these errors seem to be flying the the face of what I read.

Do I need to configure SSL for puppetdb to get it to work? and What's my best chance of getting things working again. Start from scratch, or am I just overlooking something from my configs.?

the "server_urls" is set to so it's going to try and use SSL. Change to http instead of https and it might work.
