Using stunnel with usenet application in Windows 7
I have usenet program(Newsleecher v4.0 beta 20) that I use in conjunction with SSL by using a program called stunnel (which establish and encrypted SSL tunnel). Basically Newsleecher does a loopback to 127.0.0.1 to port 119. Port 119 is redirected to the stunnel app which sets up an encrypted connection to my Usenet server(Newshosting).
When I was using Windows XP I had no problems. However in Windows 7 it does'nt let me establish a a localhost connection to my stunnel application.
stunnel picks up 10 connections but newsleecher times out. I also looked at the firewall rules and allowed stunnel access to all port private/public and all protocols. If use newsleecher with SSL it works fine.
Here are the configuration files...
Server Address: 127.0.0.1
Encrypted Server Connection (SSL) is checked
; Use it for client mode
client = yes
; Service-level configuration
compression = zlib
accept = 127.0.0.1:119
connect = nhxl.newshosting.com:563

Windows 7 SEARCH vs Apple Tiger/Leopard (GOOD USENET WINDOWS PROGRAM?)
One thing that drove me crazy when using windows vs say a mac is that all mac programs use the search, spotlight feature really well. For example, when launching UNISON, a usenet program for Apple OS, and you typed "shooter" you would instantly get every instance of the word "shooter" in a...
