Can not make TLS/SSL connection to kafka v0,9 using filebeat v5


I am trying to figure out how to make TLS/SSL connection from filebeat v5. I have enabled TLS and client authentication on a Kafka v0.9 server, and configure filebeat with TLS enabled, but I am getting tons of TLS error:

Just wondering have anybody successfully configure filebeat v 5 to connect to kafka v 0.9 through TLS/SSL?

Looks like kafka is not configured properly. The TLS connection setup fails, due to kafka endpoint not using TLS. Have you enabled SSL support in kafka? You pointing beats to correct ports?

Seems like bootstrap brokers can not be accessed already. Once this is possible, make sure all kafka brokers to advertise the correct host and port.
