Installing puppet on CentOS 7


At the moment I have a little issue with installing/downloading puppet on CentOS 7.
The command that have been used is:
'sudo rpm -ivh'

Then I'm getting the following error:
curl: (6) could not resolve host:; unkown error
error: skipping transfer failed'

I'm running CentOS inside VirtualBox.
Anyone know the issue of this error ?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum

Strange, the address is valid, since the file downloads when you click on the link. I'm guessing your internet connection (in CentOS) works fine otherwise? Can you install the RPM file manually?

I also found this page if it helps any.

Thank you.

The link is working whenever I try to download it outside of Linux / VirtualBox, but not inside.
Also ping some random website doesn't work but I have read that's a commmon issue at VirtualBox.
It even can't ping my own router, I have just noticed and giving me this error:
'connect: Network is unreachable'

At the moment I have put the network options to NAT.

EDIT: I found the solution to this problem which is by simply re´nstalling. Installed some packages and turning the internet connection switch on before the installation.
