[stunnel-users] Stunnel 4.53 for win32 - without config file

putting config file in a folder properly protected by permissions set is 
the best way to do that.
I always wonder why some people want to use stunnel without leaving any 
trace on their (?) server machine:
many of those are just trying to open backdoors on systems...

"security reasons"...hmm...just bad excuse.

Anyway, is next question "how to hide stunnel from running in ps or 
netstat sys command" ?
