Installing Stunnel on CentOS 5

Stunnel is a program that allows you to encrypt arbitrary TCP connections inside SSL available on both Unix and Windows. Stunnel can allow you to secure non-SSL aware daemons and protocols (like POP, IMAP, LDAP, etc) by having Stunnel provide the encryption, requiring no changes to the daemon's code.

To install Stunnel on CentOS 5:
  1. Download the latest source tarball (stunnel-4.25.tar.gz as of 2008-07-22) from http://www.stunnel.org/download/source.html to /tmp.
  2. cd /tmp
  3. gzip -dc stunnel-#.##.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
  4. cd /stunnel-#.##
  5. ./configure
  6. make
  7. make install

Re: Installing Stunnel on CentOS 5

Just curious why you dont install it with the RPM that comes with CentOS?

Re: Installing Stunnel on CentOS 5

You are correct, that is easier way to go.  I'm not dissatisfied with the way I outlined, it was easy enough.  I had to figure it out for work purposes, and it gets the added benefit of 3 additional years of development... <a >http://www.stunnel.org/news/
