That is more of a question about your firewall than stunnel. What you
might be looking for is "port triggering" and if it's not your own
firewall where you'll have admin access to change this, you don't have
much hope. There ARE ways around it but, again, they have nothing to do
with stunnel. Tunnelling is what you want, you just need some support
software to accomplish it.
