This is OK. OpenSSL people explained me that DTLS secures only one
pair of peers.

And what about the second part of the question?
Is it (or will it ever be) possible to tell the stunnel to join a
multicasting group?
If it joins - then all the incoming stream could be made available for
the (only one) client stunnel connected to it.
If the client stunnel could be instructed to open it's output socket
in the multicasting mode as well - then any host on the same LAN as
the client stunnel will be able to virtually "join" the tunneled
stream - and this will solve my current need...

Please comment.
