[stunnel-users] [Newbie] Set up question

I have compiled and installed stunnel 4.10 under Mac OS X 10.3.

I want to set up stunnel to connect a non-ssl newsreader client to an 
ssl nntp server.
The newsreader client is Unison and the server is Easynews SSL server.

I don't really know how to do this. I wonder if anyone can point me 
in the right direction.




PS I did various searches of the list archive and read TFM, but still 
need guidance!
I am asked to include some details:
