>> I have installed stunnel 4.20 on Windows2003 server and have
>> created my private key as follow:
>> openssl req -new -days 365 -nodes -config stunnel.cnf -out
>> certreq.pem -keyout stunnel.pem
>> After that I have send certreq.pem to my own CA and have

>> I append this certificate (certnew.cer) to my stunnel.pem file like:
>> data here
>> -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
>> data here
>> -----END CERTIFICATE-----
>> But this doesn't work. Still receive the message that I also read 
>> on the stunnel.conf must I config something here?
>> cert = stunnel.pem
>> key = stunnel.pem
>> ; Authentication stuff
>> ;verify = 2
>> ; Don't forget to c_rehash CApath
>> ;CApath = certs
>> ; It's often easier to use CAfile
>> ;CAfile = certs.pem
>>  ; Don't forget to c_rehash CRLpath
>> ;CRLpath = crls
>> ; Alternatively you can use CRLfile
>> ;CRLfile = crls.pem
>> Can anyone tell me please what certificate I place where and how config
>> the stunnel.conf so I get this working?
