Stunnel installation problems
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
The stunnel rpm has a few minor problems:
1) Directory /usr/var/run/stunnel doesn't exist
2) /etc/stunnel/stunnel.conf default uses nogroup rather than nobody
for the group
Set the owner/group for /usr/var/stunnel to nobody.nobody.
It would be really nice to have an /etc/init.d script to run stunnel
at boot time. I have one from when I installed stunnel a long time ago
from source. If it isn't in the current stunnel source I can add it here.
The sample really shouldn't be used as-is, these are some of the
reasons. Moving the sample file to the docs directory to keep that
confusion out. Adding an init script isn't very practical because two
instances of stunnel would need to be started if both client and
server mode were desired, and the current init script machinery isn't
very good for that.
Slightly cleaning up the sample, and moving it to the documentation
directory, for future revisions.
