Based on you above notes, I use the following settings in stunnel-tlsvpn.conf:

$ grep -Ev '^[ ]*(#|;|$)' stunnel-tlsvpn.conf
client = yes
verify = 1
foreground = yes
[tlsvpn]
accept = 127.0.0.1:3000
sni = coolaj86.com
connect = 67.166.110.237:443
CAfile = ./root.pem

But still, firefox failed with the above url, the error is as follows:

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to coolaj86.com:3000 was interrupted while the page was loading.

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the
authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.


Why should I slove this issue?

Thanks again.
