Thread: GrabIt and stunnel error on 563

  1. #1
    Hi,

    I am trying to use stunnel with GrabIt by changing the default port from 119 to either 563 or 443. In this case I am trying 563. When I change the port in GrabIt from 119 to 563. I get unable to connect to news.rcn.com:563. When I left it at 119 it works fine but with throttling. I left both the name and host at news.rcn.com. My stunnel.conf log is below. Am I doing this right or wrong? Thank you for any replies.


    ; Sample stunnel configuration file by Michal Trojnara 2002-2006
    ; Some options used here may not be adequate for your particular configuration

    ; Certificate/key is needed in server mode and optional in client mode
    ; The default certificate is provided only for testing and should not
    ; be used in a production environment
    cert = stunnel.pem
    ;key = stunnel.pem

    ; Some performance tunings
    socket = l:TCP_NODELAY=1
    socket = r:TCP_NODELAY=1

    ; Workaround for Eudora bug
    ;options = DONT_INSERT_EMPTY_FRAGMENTS

    ; Authentication stuff
    ;verify = 2
    ; Don't forget to c_rehash CApath
    ;CApath = certs
    ; It's often easier to use CAfile
    ;CAfile = certs.pem
    ; Don't forget to c_rehash CRLpath
    ;CRLpath = crls
    ; Alternatively you can use CRLfile
    ;CRLfile = crls.pem

    ; Some debugging stuff useful for troubleshooting
    ;debug = 7
    ;output = stunnel.log

    ; Use it for client mode
    client = yes
    debug = debug

    ; Service-level configuration


    [usenet]
    accept = 563
    connect = news.rcn.com:563
    ; vim:ft=dosini

    RCN's outsource contract with Giganews doesn't allow SSL, or higher speed on port 119.

    OK, First of all I am not using Giganews, I am using GrabIt and second how can I open a different port besides 119? Is what I stated in my original post.

    GrabIt is a program, Giganews is a Usenet service provider. What he is saying is that you're using the program GrabIt and connection to a server that is hosted by Giganews (due to your ISP outsourcing its Usenet service) and that your Usenet service does not support SSL.
