[Pulp-list] Pulp-admin connection refused (CentOS 7)

I am struggeling a bit with my latest Pulp installation on CentOS 7.

I am receiving this error message:

$ pulp-admin login -u usera
Enter password:
The connection was refused when attempting to contact the server
[servername.localdomain]. Check the client configuration to ensure
server hostname is correct.

* 'usera' has been defined in `/etc/pulp/server.conf`.
* 'servername.localdomain' is the replacment of the actual servername.
  DNS is configured and the server reachable with that entry.

My initial setup was done via Puppet 3.8, but when I could not find any
error in the service logs and not fix the error either, I followed the
manual installation at
https://pulp.readthedocs.org/en/latest/user-guide/installation.html and
got the same result.

* Port localhost:80 is open, port localhost:443 is not. I am not sure if
* this is important if I am only trying to connect from the local server
* itself.
* The thing that is different compared to previous installations is,
  that I do not have a full understanding of the initial setup of the
  host I am installing on. So I will go and do a reference installation
  on a VM to check any weird configuration there, but if somebody is
  familiar with this error and could point something obvious out to
  check that I missed: that would be very kind.
