 	I am not sure what you are trying to do.  You want clients to 
connect via https to ports 465 on two different IPs and then stunnel to 
forward them to the appropriate http daemon?
 	I am not sure if stunnel works in that method - that is the 
reverse of what I use stunnel for - I connect via an unencrypted 
connection, and forward via stunnel to an encrypted daemon.
 	And if you are talking about virtually hosting https connections, 
that will work, as long as the certificate contains both servernames - you 
can't use two different certificates, because you don't know which 
certificate to serve until after the connection is encrypted.
