Hi, I don't understand the necessity to wrap an incoming connection
with stunnel and what this has in common with the usage of
certificates that are usually used for the autenticity of the parts of
a communication (the client and the server). I don't know stunnel and
SSL, but I know they are used to encrypt a tcp connection into a
secure tunnel. IMHO, a good way to test the authenticity of users that
make connections with the gnump3d server may be the use of a
username/password eventually cripted with a public/provate key
alghoritm during the transfer from client to server.
Do you agree?
