Ok, this has clarified things for me.
Another question, do you have a copy of the proxy program (SocksCap
?) running on
If not then this is the problem. I believe that stunnel does not
itself act as a proxy. It
simply acts as a tunnel.

A quick example:
SocksCap listening on port 8080 ( for example) forwards to
stunnel listening on port 500, forwarded any data to PC2 port 500
stunnel listening on port 500 forwards data to 127.0.0.1:8080
SocksCap listening on port 8080 forwards data out to the internet.
This will encrypt data between PC1 & PC2 but after that it will be
back in plain.
In order to test this I would break it down into its individual
components and test each
stage. I recommend downloading netcat
(http://netcat.sourceforge.net/ or google for it)
and learn how to use it. Sorry I can't help you with this bit, its
better if you learn it
yourself - and once you have you will wonder how you ever managed
without it ;)
