I am trying to update my companies Certificate in STunnel and I'm getting 
the following error messages:

Certificate: pass-web_new.pem
Error reading certificate file: pass-web_new.pem
error queue: 140DC009 : error:140DC009:SSL 
routines:SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file:PEM lib
error queue: 906700D : error:0906700D:PEM routines:PEM_ASN1_read_bio:ASN1 
error queue: D08303A : error:0D08303A:asn1 encoding

SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file: D0680A8: error:0D0680A8:asn1 encoding 
routines:ASN1_CHECK_TLEN:wrong tag

We are currently using STunnel without issue; but my certificate is due to 
expire November 15th.  I submitted my request via a CSR file created with 
OPENSSL.  I've attempted to put the data into the file pointed at in the 
stunnel.conf file but this error continues to haunt me.  My previous key 
was 256, but when making this key I created a 1024 key and used that for 
the CSR file.

I've also added the Intermediate certificate information to the file. Any 
information on what could be the problem is greatly appreciated.
