Ok - weird.  It just started working and I now can't make it fail.  Same config file and same command line, but now it works.

If it reading from .\config ... then I would try putting the path in quotes.  If it fails to read the one in \temp but is not reading anything, I would check permissions on the directory and file (easy test is set "everyone" to full permissions, at least as a test).  You have to do the entire directory tree (in the case of c:\temp it is just that directory) and the file.

Subject: [stunnel-users] Windows stunnel Command Line Configuration File Location

I would like to be able to run stunnel interactively on Windows, but specify a different location for the configuration file.  When I looked at the help output, it stated that you could pass a parameter for "[<filename>]".  I assumed I could put a path on there, but it does not appear to work.  For example, I tried running "stunnel.exe C:\temp\stunnel.conf", but it would not find the configuration file even though it is there.

Is there a way to do what I am trying to do or does the config file have to be in a folder "..\config"?
