     1.7 -apps/generate-config-files.py for that. Run apps/generate-certificates
     1.8 -to generate certificates for TLS communication. This is optional, the
     1.9 -examples that support command line arguments can be run with a
    1.10 ---no-tls flag and will then use plain TCP connections. Finally,
