Hello Rob,
Can it be that the httpd service is not running properly?
On all servers, I can only run wget on the server itself successfully...
At least on fc15, the client was able to contact the server, but the
connection was refused.
maybe the configuration part of httpd?
On other machines in the same lab, I have set up two web servers in the
"usual" way and they both run with no problem.

I don't know what to tell you. This problem is independent of IPA. It means that the client doesn't know how to get to the server (no route to host)

Connection refused would suggest that the server isn't accepting connections. You could use netstat to confirm that it is listening on ports 80 and 443, I think you'll find it is.

IPA doesn't do anything particularly clever with the web server, just configures it to use mod_nss as an SSL listener. Since wget is using port 80 you aren't even using any changes made by IPA. And no route to host suggests it isn't even getting that far.

You might try shutting down iptables on the server and client and try that.

    This is unrelated to IPA. We do no network configuration changes,
    only start services.

    The client is doing a simple wget which just issues an HTTP request.
    The network stack is saying it can't talk to the IPA server so I'd
    start there. wireshark might be helpful.
