Windows 7: Using stunnel with usenet application in Windows 7

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...

Newsleecher settings:

Server Address: 127.0.0.1
Port: 119
Encrypted Server Connection (SSL) is checked


stunnel.conf settings:

; Use it for client mode
client = yes

; Service-level configuration

compression = zlib

[nntps]

accept = 127.0.0.1:119

connect = nhxl.newshosting.com:563

Usenet/Newsgroup Access ?
Hello, Presently, I use Comcast for my Internet. And Motzarella for my Newgroup/Usenet Access. This is done via Thunderbird. Guess I've never thought about this much, and am frankly not all that sharp with this PC stuff, and am now very confused over the Newsgroup/Usenet portion. My son...

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...
