Hi Jose Alf,
                  Thanks for your reply,anyway i found out what is
wrong....actually i don`t have the libwrap library for my
arm-linux.And stunnel needs tcp wrappers header files also.so i
downloaded the tcp wrapper and cross compiled it for my arm-linux.and
gave the header file location with -CPPFLAGS compiler flags.after this
stunnel successfully checking the /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny
file for host authorization.thanks for your kind reply.
