Fwd: [stunnel-users] stunnel 'options' section of config file

I understand the security concerns... I was just trying different
protocols because I was receiving weird error messages with some https
proxies (using the mathias wald patch) about wrong version numbers,
etc. Googling it seemed to indicate that enabling/disabling
ssl2/ssl3/tls1 could do the trick. However, I can't even get 'openssl
s_client...' to yield a successful connection with some of these

Can stunnel handle incoming http or socks proxy requests/connections?
If not, will you ever support that? For instance I want stunnel
listening on a local port 8080 and connect to a remote https proxy,
and I set the HTTP proxy server in gaim to localhost:8080.
