We have been using Stunnel 4.05 now for quite sometime now with OpenSSL
0.97d.I had a question regarding the SSL Version.When I look into the
Stunnel.log I see
Negotiated ciphers: AES256-SHA              SSLv3 Kx=RSA      Au=RSA
Enc=AES(256)  Mac=SHA1

This means that stunnel is using AES-256-SHA1 which uses SSL v3. Is it
standard for stunnel4.05 to use SSL v3 or is it dependent on the OpenSSL
We haven't configured anything in the stunnel.conf to use SSL v3.
