Michal, et al,

When attempting to connect from a Windows box to a Solaris box (as the
server), the Solaris stunnel log (debug = 7) shows that the certificate
on the Windows box (included with the download) has expired. I can
connect from a Solaris 9 client box with no problems.

The Solaris box is running as an NTP client to an internal NTP server.
The Windows box isn't logged into a domain, but the time is within 5
minutes of the Solaris box.

Solaris server:
		Solaris 9 (2004/09, no patches)
		OpenSSL 0.9.8a
		Stunnel 4.15

		Syslog-ng 1.6.11	(working fine on a client
Solaris 9 box)

Windows client:
		Windows XP
		Stunnel 4.15

		EventReporter 8.0.268/8.0.219

stunnel.conf: (borrowed and modified from a Solaris client box) 

	;CLIENT-ONLY stunnel configuration file
	client = yes
	cert = C:\Program Files\stunnel\stunnel.pem-client-certificate	
	CAfile = C:\Program Files\stunnel\stunnel.pem-server-certificate
	;chroot = /var/run/stunnel
	;pid = /usr/local/var/run/stunnel/stunnel.pid
	;setuid = stunnel
	;setgid = stunnel
	verify = 3
	;foreground = yes
	debug = 7
	output = C:\Program Files\stunnel\stunnel.log
		accept =
		connect =

If the certificate has truly expired, could you post a new one? If not,
any suggestions?
