This is a very interesting bug. It took me a while to diagnose it. It
looks like when stunnel connects to the same server the second time and
offers to resume the previously negotiated session (to avoid using
time-consuming asymmetric cryptography), the remote server just
disconnects the TCP session. This is probably not the most graceful way
to handle an unsupported feature. I wonder what software do they use
The workaround is to prevent stunnel from sending session tickets with
the following configuration file option:
options = NO_TICKET
You can either specify the option globally, or only in the specific
sections of the malfunctioning servers.
