I think you're going to need to start with the PuppetLab docs.

Using a Puppet master with multiple agents is the de facto way to run Puppet. If you have your Puppet master up and running, you should be able to test a puppet run from an agent with 'puppet agent -t --server SERVERNAME'. You'll then need to sign your agent's certificate on the server to complete the process.

If you get everything up-and-running. Go back to the agent and update the puppet.conf with the entry SERVER=<my server="" name=""> Restart puppet with systemd, initd, upstart... and you should be good to go.

Good luck!
