Hello Everyone,

I tried it on 4.3.3 as well with my re-compiled version ... below are 
all 5 lines in the log file.

  stunnel 4.16 on powerpc-ibm-aix4.3.3.0 with OpenSSL 0.9.8c 05 Sep 2006
  Threading:PTHREAD SSL:ENGINE Sockets:POLL,IPv4
  stunnel connected from
  remote socket: Addr family not supported by protocol (66)
  Connection reset: 0 bytes sent to SSL, 0 bytes sent to socket

I have been using this for a while but I had to transfer to a new 
machine (AIX 4.3 to 5.3) and had to recompile my software and get a 
newer stunnel.  My version is stunnel-3.8p4:

I thought it might be related to ipv4 versus ipv6 ... according to 
AIX documentation I had it set up for ipv4.  I tried ipv6 for ducks, 
no difference.  My inetd.conf line is:

visanet stream  tcp    nowait  root /visanet/ssl/stunnel stunnel 

My .conf file is:

output = /tmp/stunnel.log
debug = 5
RNDfile = /visanet/ssl/stunnel.rnd
RNDoverwrite = yes
client = yes
connect = ssllab.pgs.wcom.net:443
sslVersion = SSLv2
cert = /visanet/ssl/stunnel.pem
EGD = /etc/egd-pool

My guess is that this is something really stupid I am doing, but it 
is not obvious.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,  Eric
