Subject Re: Adding a node to cluster
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2016 10:10:45 GMT
Ok, seems I've confused you. 

Couchdb replication occurs over http or https, as you know. The nodes in a couchdb 2.0 cluster
do not communicate with each other over http. They use Erlang rpc. Erlang rpc can be configured
for TLS encryption.  It's in the Erlang faq and is fairly simple to set up in newer Erlang

I feel I owe an example of 2.0 cluster that exclusively uses TLS for all communications.
