Hi anonymous questioner,

As far as I remember, the certificates have to be in PEM format in
order to be used by stunnel. (The '.crt' extension makes me suppose
they are in DER format.) You may use openssl to convert from DER to

  openssl pkcs12 -in filename.crt -out filename.pem

Moreover, the files containing the certificates need to have special
file names. The 'c_rehash' utility takes care for that.
