 Why not SSH?
Author: Ben Goren 
Date:   16-11-01 21:17

Um...just out of curiousity, what does this give that SSH port forwarding doesn't? I mean, the end result is the same--connections to localhost get transparently forwarded and encrypted to the remote computer. SSH, however, is readily available for all platforms and doesn't require messing with inetd.

So, is there something I'm missing that makes stunnel superior? Can it handle situations that SSH port forwarding can't?
