[stunnel-users] URL changes in browser to http from https

I figured it out. The webserver was redirecting me to the index.html
page so that is where the protocol was getting changed.  

So now the question changes.  Is there a function in stunnel for URL
rewriting?  In otherwords the webserver sends back "redirect yourself to
http:// but stunnel intercepts that before it gets back to your browser
to keep the connection secure?

I am just starting to experiment with stunnel on Debian Linux, using the
standard debian packages.  I've got it working so far accepting requests
on the local port 443 and connecting on 80, but when the page loads the
URL changes back to a non-secure address.

To illustrate: loads a simple static web page and you get the
normal warning for the certificate, but after the page loads the URL
changes to http://192/168.1.10 .  I thought this might just be IE or
something but Firefox does it too.  Could I be missing a setting in

Any ideas?
