    I'm use to debugging services by attaching to the port the service is
    located on via telnet.
    This is a simple way to interface with the service and step through the
    command and authorization steps to see what is happening.

    When I switch a service to use stunnel to enable SSL encryption of the
    service, can I directly call that port via ssh to start an interactive
    Or do I need to "wrap a client" (as per the stunnel 'wrapping a client
    process' instructions) telnet to connect to the service port?

    Given: RedHat 8.0 all patches installed.
                Mem 1/2 Gig
                Processor (1.2 Ghtz Athalon)

    -Thanks in advance for the help.
