Hi All,

Without wishing to sound naïve I find this whole subject area to be
extraordinarily riddled with cryptic explanations of how to configure
stunnel to work with a key and certificate.

Using openssl I have generated a file including RSA private key and
certificate which stunnel running as a server happily digests.
Now I want to create the cer file that Windows will happily digest on the
client side. Short of ripping the certificate out of the stunnel.pem file
that I created using the command 

openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -config stunnel.cnf -out stunnel.pem
-keyout stunnel.pem

what are the steps to getting that holy grail with a 'cer' extension?

Please educate
