TLS encryption for IBM InfoSphere Data Replication Event Server

We do have a requirement to have TLS encryption to and from Linux replication engines with Access & Event Server versions.

We're able to do the encryptions in IIDR Access Server but from Access Server unable to connect IIDR Event server as its not encrypted.

We're expecting to have this functionality in Event server itself as don't want to go with any other third party tool like SSL tunneling to achieve this.
