Dear Ludolf et al:

Thank you very much for your recent communication.  I drew up what I thought I needed, based on your answer, in the configuration file.  As might be expected in that I'm a novice at this, I still have a few more questions:

1. I tried it with and without the "Authentification stuff". Either way, after modifying stunnel.conf, and running stunnel.exe, stunnel.exe bombed with the following error:

"Stunnel server down"

What caused this?


2. My other question is:

Do I need to put stunnel.exe in the startup folder?  Does it automatically reference stunnel.conf (that is what I was assuming)?  When I get it to run correctly, automatically referencing stunnel, conf, then can I run Calypso with the settings changed to tie in with the stunnel conf file?

All of the above I was assuming was true, but I'm just asking to make sure.
