puppet kick from master gets connection refused from agent

I have installed puppet agent (windows) and master successfully. When i download the node from agent it works fine (puppet agent -t ) and the nodes are pulled successfully.

But when i trigger the same from the puppet master, i get connection error as below.

Error: Host agent01 failed: Connection refused - connect(2) I did a wireshark in agent machine and i could see the connection made to agent at port 8139 and is responded with a red ACK message.

Since the connection has reached the agent, am assuming agent rejected the connection. Could some one please help me fix this problem.

However, if i run puppet agent --no-daemonize --debug from the Powershell console, the build gets pushed successsfully.

So the failure happens only if run the agent from Puppet Agent as windows service.
