Hello Tobias,

To be honest, I don't understand what you are trying to do.

If you just want to have a SSL protected telnet session, why don't you
let stunnel run as a deamon (in client mode) and invoke telnet?

Or do you want to provide SSL protected telnet connections? Then a
stunnel daemon (in server mode) could do the authentification /
decryption / encryption stuff and redirect the pain TCP traffic to the
telnet port of the server.

Do you want to accomplish something else?
