Stunnel - TLS proxy


Recommended Posts

I've read a few posts on this forums about TLS support under Windows XP and i've just stumbled upon Stunnel,

which is a proxy designed to add TLS encryption functionality to existing clients and servers.

I don't know if this can solve the TLS issue under XP, but here you go to learn more about Stunnel.

And here is the latest version (5.49) for Windows XP (32 bits).

Thanks, yes Stunnel has been around a long time, and I know that many people use it.
Personally I use ProxHTTPSProxy, which has been ported to XP my @heinoganda.
I don't know what the pros and cons are of one program over the other, but HTTPSProxy seems to do everything I need at the moment.
Welcome to the forum BTW!

Stunnel works like this (my experience of old version): If you want to connect https://siteA, you create a port mapping between localhost:1234 and siteA:443, then visit http://localhost:1234 instead in browser. Apparently you cannot create too many mappings yourself.

+1 for ProxHTTPSProxyMii by @heinoganda

I've been using it for years now and it works just fine.

Besides, you can also decide which websites are gonna be bypassed so that the certificate provided is the real certificate provided by the server, so it solves pretty much every problem. The only thing is that it doesn't support TLS1.3 (yet), but it works just fine for TLS1.2 with ECC certificates.

Umm, excuse my ignorance, but what did heinoganda do?

You can use the original thing provided that you run it via Python, so it's compiled at run time.

The exe by Heinoganda is compiled at compilation time and is more compatible with other CPUs than the built-in Python runtime dll

I tried Eudora OSE but dropped it pretty quickly.
It doesn't have the facility to edit received messages for a start, which I use all the time on Eudora.
It's also based on a version of Thunderbird which is itself very out of date now, and the program hasn't been updated for years.
Off topic, but you're better off IMO with the last version of "real" Eudora (7.1.0.9) and the Hermes update which adds TLS 1.2 support, which many e-mail providers are now insisting on.
