I was reading a book where they discussed using stunnel as client and
server proxy with -d -r and -c options. I have SuSE 9.3 and the
stunnel on it has different options. Then I found that we have to use
config file. I used it to configure my server. I defined the following

accept = 12345
connect = 12323

Here my server listens on 12323. I have my server already running. Now
I typed stunnel and nothing happened. I typed "pgrep stunnel" and
could not see anything. Apparently I have not understood how stunnel
works. Can some one let me know how can I configure to use stunnel to
secure my server app and my client app which are not ssl aware.

I also have a question. The book which I am reading says, stunnel acts
as a proxy for a server app. If my server app is listening on A then
if I want stunnel to service all clients connecting to A then how can
it do it as that port is already serviced by my server app.
