My mind works bettter whn I'm reading real words. So please help me to help you. You know what to do.

The key is "bind:address already in use". Something is already using port 443. My guess: you're running https on that port already.

Your choice: what do you want listening on port 442? stunnel? Or apache?

thanks dan,
but now i want to stunnel to listen to 443(https) and yes i checked apache conf files too..they aren't listening to 443(i confirmed with lsof,netstat -a).when i tested stunnel to listen to 9999 the client side was able to talk to server( not without prompting for certificate warnings since its self-signed ;)). but the connection was soon broken(i used telnet to connect to 9999).

now i want to know 2 things:
1)how do i make stunnel to listen to 443(bcoz my primary aim is to let client to have SSL connection which is to served by my server with normal http w/o touching it).

2)why did the connection break initially?

thanks in advance
