Have you made sure that there is something listening on port 6161 of
the host and that the host that stunnel is running on
can establish a connection to it? No firewalls, no routing problems
or anything like that?

What happens if you run - on the host that stunnel runs on - this:

  nc -v -z 6161

...and also, if stunnel is supposed to establish a secure connection to
that host (that is, if stunnel is working in client mode):

  openssl s_client -connect

The first command should exit immediately and tell you that a TCP
connection was established successfully; the second one should also try
to negotiate a TLS connection and show you what the server on the other
side tells you after the connection has been established.
