setting up SSL/STunnel + HFS
« on: June 27, 2017, 03:47:44 AM »
Hello all!

many years ago (~2012 iirc) I successfully set up STunnel + HFS.
I then moved interstate, and since the server was in my house, obviously had to go off-line. Live got in the way, but now I am ready to revive my server! :D

I have no recollection of how I did it the last time. This guide:

http://www.rejetto.com/wiki/index.php?title=HFS:_Secure_your_server

is hard to follow and seems out-dated with the different software verions now available (OpenSSL, STunnel etc).

I have installed:
OpenSSL, version: full, x64, 1.1.0f
STunnel, 5.41, x86
and am using latest HFS 2.3K

If I start up STunnel, it's log window states that it has loaded everything correctly - however I do not know how to test if it is accepting any traffic
The same for HFS, it runs, but no idea if it is connecting to/thru STunnel

I assume somewhere I have missed a step, i.e. puttting in DNS details, domain name details etc.

Could anyone please help me? :(

If someone could help me get this to work, I'm willing to write a 'quick how-to' guide, in clear concise English, and using the latest dependant software (OpenSSL, STunnel etc).

You can also start by looking at this thread: Portable sHFS (HFS via STunnel) + GUI de configuration. ;)

The user dmatter has reported, that this package still works if you update HFS and Stunnel to the latest version (HFS v2.3kB299 and Stunnel v5.41).
