The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper between remote client and local (inetd-startable) or remote server.

Stunnel can be used to add SSL functionality to commonly used inetd daemons like POP3, POP2 and IMAP servers without any changes in the programs' code.

Stunnel uses OpenSSL or SSLeay libraries for cryptography, so it supports whatever cryptographic algorithms you compiled into your library.

What's New in This Release:
The new transfer() function has been well tested.
Users of any previous version are encouraged to upgrade to this one.
Support for encrypted passphases (broken in 4.19) was fixed.
The amount of debug logging was reduced.
A minor man page update was made.
