What's the reason to use client mode stunnel for http?
Most web browsers support http natively.

The port is also confusing.  Since you use client mode your 
httpsupportingproxy2:6588 should be an SSL-enabled server
and is a plain http service, isn't it?

And to have a certificate-based authentication it's a good idea to turn
it on.  SSL is vulnerable to main-in-the-middle attacks, otherwise.
