This is home page for stunnel: https://www.stunnel.org/
And notes about it:
The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper between remote client and local (inetd-startable) or remote server. It can be used to add SSL functionality to commonly used inetd daemons like POP2, POP3, and IMAP servers without any changes in the programs' code.


I want to use it for my personal utilization and prevent from public accessing. There is an option "verify" and also "CApath, CAfile, CRLpath, CRLfile" in the config file that i think do something like that but i can't understand what should i do?! What and Which commands are needed.

Hello !

Yes, I am aware of that, I ask more on the line of why you need it ? Isnt it better to use ssl with your software ? If the certifficate is a problem, you can use a self signed or free third party verified certificate: http://www.startssl.com/?app=1
It seems complicated to use stunnel just for this.
You may also use a VPN of some sort.
I mean I do not see a use for this kind of software, but I am willing to check it if it provides some interesting functionality.

Well, sometimes that vpn is blocked and for (secure) port redirection this tool can be very useful (where ssh is limited too) and also for run away from dns spoofing!

I'm hope you interest to help ;)

Hello !

Unfortunately I cant help if I dont know the software.
In cases where VPN is blocked, I can use squid on port 80 with https.
Also ssh can work over port 80, we have a tutorial on how to do a vpn over ssh on port 80.
