[stunnel-users] newbie: stunnel works but do not encrypt

1. Yes I`m sure. I use the same connection string to tunnel connect using OpenSSH and putty. And it works fine. But it is the same with http port forward. It seems that no connection through my stunnel setup is encrypted.
2. I use Ethereal on serverside of tunnel. It shows no SSH type packet, as oposite OpenSSH and putty shows just SSH packet, and also I`m able to see in packet my SQL request (trivial select sysdate from dual) and also the responce. The same situation is with http port forward. I apologize I would have to mention that I`m using Ethereal to inspect packets. Tomorow I can send you output from ET.  ( :-) )
I do not know if my setup is wrong or not, if I have to switch on some "switch" to begin encryption or stunnel should encrypt by default.

1. Are you sure your Oracle client is configured to connect instead of

2. How did you realize that it `does not encrypt'?
