To my knowledge, the port was added but TLS was never implemented. It
may be better if we remove that code entirely. Why you'd want a secure
port and an insecure port at the same time for a cluster never did make
much sense to me.

The typical TLS configuration is a poor choice for clusters It would
require quite a lot of configuration. Encryption based on a pre-shared
private key would be a better approach.
