[stunnel-users] Stunnel --- communication + encryption in both directions

I am interested in using Stunnel, but I am a little confused currently.  The 
"Forwarding an insecure port securely from one machine to another" 
(http://www.stunnel.org/examples/generic_tunnel.html) example only discusses 
the situation for sending data from the server to the client (i.e. a single 
direction).  How would stunnel have to be set up so that encrypted 
communication is achieve in both directions?  That is, from server to client 
and also from client to server?

Imagine that there is an application running on one end, and an identical 
app running on the other end and neither supports encryption.  So I want to 
bring stunnel into the picture, so that communication is encrypted/decrypted 
on both ends.
