You could encrypt/decrypt manually. It would go like this:

1) Send RSA public key to the client
2) Have client generate a session key and send it back encrypted
3) Decrypt session key on the server using server's public key
4) Have server and client use block encryption like RC5-CBC for the  
rest of the session

The advantage of this approach is that you can encrypt just the  
packets you want which will save you a bit of traffic.
