Masa, if you don't understand the question, don't bother to post. STunnel is a separate application you run to provide SSL support for applications which don't have native SSL support. By running STunnel you allow users to connect to your Abyss server using SSL/HTTPS.

TRUSTpunk, I will try and get a simple tutorial up sometime this weekend - it's a very simple process if you read the documentation, but I'll see if I can make it simpler!

== Downloading and Configuring STunnel ==

Download the current version of STunnel and the OpenSSL libraries from the STunnel website.

www.stunnel.org/download/binaries.html

Currently these are :
http://www.stunnel.org/download/stunnel/win32/stunnel-4.05.exe
http://www.stunnel.org/download/stunnel/win32/openssl-0.9.7d-zlib/openssl.zip

Create a folder for STunnel on your HD. Doesn't matter where.

Unzip the OpenSSL.zip file into the folder. Copy STunnel-x.xx.exe into the folder.

Copy and paste the following into Notepad :

Code:

[web]
accept=443
connect=80


Save the file as "stunnel.conf" into the folder you have put STunnel and the OpenSSL files into.

* You will need to put the quotes into the Save As dialogue in Notepad to get the file save with a .conf extension *

Accept is the port that STunnel is going to listen for connections on, Connect is the port that it is going to connect to. We haven't specified a host so it will default to listening and connecting to localhost. If you are running Abyss on a different port, you will need to change 80 to the port you have Abyss running on.

If you have a router and are using port forwarding, don't change the Accept port here - if you are going to use a different port, just change the port you are forwarding on your router from the port Abyss is currently running on to listen on 443 and forward to 4443 on your machine. You may choose to set your router to listen on a different port, however users will then have to enter https://yoursite.com:newport instead of just https://yoursite.com. The same applies if you do not have a router but choose to change the Accept port.

* Some browsers seem to have problems with https on non standard ports, however, if your ISP blocks port 80 they may well block port 443 (HTTPS) as well - it would be better to try on the standard HTTPS port first *

You now need an SSL certificate to use with STunnel. Assuming you aren't going to buy one, you will need to generate one. This is a complicated process, so use the online certificate generator on STunnel.org instead.

http://www.stunnel.org/pem/

Fill out the details however you want, but enter the domain name for your site correctly. It doesn't matter if this a free subdomain, just enter the whole thing. Select No for generating DH parameters in the checkbox at the bottom and generate your certificate. Copy and paste the result from the textbox into notepad and save it into the folder you created for STunnel as "STunnel.pem". Again, you will need to include the quotes to create a non standard extension.

* If you are paranoid you should make an effort and read the instructions on how to create your own PEM file, found here :
http://www.stunnel.org/examples/https_windows.html
You will only need steps 5, 8 and 9. *

Run STunnel - make sure Abyss is also running. It doesn't matter if you start Abyss after STunnel but obviously Abyss will need to be runnning for you to connect.

Test your connection to your webserver by doing https://localhost, or https://localhost:portyouchose if you changed it from 443.

You should see your website. Bingo!

LIMITATION :
There is no way of making part of your site SSL based and part unsecured.

If you setup STunnel it will always give SSL access to your whole site. If you want to secure one area and not another you will need to run two copies of Abyss with two different htdocs folders, one containing content to be secured and one normal. They will have to run on different ports. If you do this, you should be able to use a https:// link within your site to a secured area.

If you want to make your site SSL only, remove the port forwarding you setup on your router for connecting directly to Abyss and leave only the port forwarding for STunnel in place. If you do not have a router, you will have to use a firewall to allow access to Abyss only from localhost - this will allow STunnel to connect and serve via SSL, but not allow remote users to connect directly to Abyss.

Any questions? If you wish to reproduce this you can, but give credit where it's due.

So theoretically, when Abyss supports virtual hosting, do you think it will be possible to have, say "secure.mydomain.com" with SSL and a normal "mydomain.com?" You mentioned something about binding to hosts, and I would guess that option would come in play.

I'm expecting that to work, however, I don't know how well host binding will work on Windows, it may just get confused and die. However, if the new version will allow you to run multiple hosts on multiple ports, it would be a simple matter to do as I said with two separate sets of htdocs, 2 different ports etc.

This was more intended as a stop gap solution, since I was assuming the full version of Abyss 2 will have the SSL support Aprelium promised :) If it's only in the Pro version, we will have to look more closely at documenting my method for paranoid home users.

The documentation of the STUnnel website was so confusing
thank you for finally writing this tutorial , many users will thank
you for what you've done , Thank You so much for the help !

Did anyone ever get chance to test these instructions? Any suggestions for additions/clarification would be useful...

Yep , STunnel works , thanks for the tutorial , you might want to create
a new topic for this so its easy to find , I went to https://localhost and
a certificate thing came up , it works , I can't believe how simple it was
but the documentation is just hard , thank you for the help , it works now.

When you view the domain properties
on the web page , you will see this !

Code:

SSL 3.0, RC4 with 128 bit encryption (High);
RSA with 1024 bit exchange

PostPosted: Sun May 15, 2005 5:51 pm    Post subject: Problem with non-standard port Reply with quote

I'm unable to get SSL working with STunnel on a non standard port. It works fine with the default port of 443, but when I change it to 4430, it no longer works and the browser gives me a HTTP 400 (Bad Request). Any ideas why?

Here's the configuration file:

Code:

debug=7
output=c:\utils\stunnel\stunnel.log

[https]
accept=4430
connect=17875
; for buggy IE (as per doc's)
TIMEOUTclose=5


Here's the log when it works (with port 443):

Code:

I've followed the above directions (I believe), but when I try to start STunnel, I get the following error:

The procedure entry point ASN1_INTEGER_cmp could not be located in the dynamic link library libeay32.dll

Anyone seen this error message before?

Thanx.

You need to install OpenSSL , My Tutorial provides you with the required files
so you don't have to , go to www.trustabyss.com and look at the Stunnel. :-)

Your STunnel tutorial is a 404 at the moment for your mirror of the STunnel files...

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

The tutorial was really helpful, but I'm having problems getting the IP of the viewer as it (as would make sense) reports localhost/127.0.0.1 as the viewer. Is there any way around this?

Thanks,

Josh

Unfortunately not - because STunnel is acting as a proxy from port 443 to port 80 (or whatever your Abyss port is) requests to your website will always appear to be from localhost... I believe that you can turn on connection logging in STunnel, which would give you a separate logfile - at least you could match the timestamps in this up to your Abyss log if you find anyone trying to abuse your site etc.

Hopefully Aprelium will get the SSL enabled version of Abyss out eventually, although I can only really see it being in X2 :(

There would be ways around it, but not tidy ones.
(Loading a non-ssl page, and logging the IP of the browser to a database, using session cookies or a unique id to identify them.)

I have gotten STunnel running with OpenSSL. I created a private key, generated the CSR...

Submitted that to GoDaddy.com for my $29 cert and got my cert!

Now, here's the only problem:

How do I install the intermediate cert and the main cert???

No where in the OpenSSL docs (as limited as they are) does it say??? Abyss doesn't presently support SSL, so I'm not quite sure how to install these shiny new files that I just bought??

HELP!!!!!!!

And thank you!

ddd admin,

There is no need to post the same post twice in a different topic. Once is enough and wont help you get a reply any quicker.

It doesnt matter where you ask you will still get a reply and/or a redirect to the correct topic, but posting twice doesnt make it faster. In some cases members will ignore you because of this. I've seen it happen before and the person asking get fustrated over it.

Thanks for the tutorial..

I maybe missing something.. I'm able to connect to
https://localhost
But I can't use my domain name
https://middazed.com or https://www.middazed.com.
I'm using zoneedit since there are three domains linked to my pc

I tried to change the webforwards in Zoneedit to
https://66.130.84.137/middazed/web
http://66.130.84.137/middazed/web
https://66.130.84.137:443/middazed/web
http://66.130.84.137:443/middazed/web
https://66.130.84.137:1024/middazed/web
http://66.130.84.137:1024/middazed/web
..I get "page cannot be displayed"

However, I am able to connect when entering directly in the address bar (IE):
https://66.130.84.137/middazed/web

Would it have to do with zoneedit ?

My STunnel.conf is set like so :
Quote:

[web]
accept=443
connect=1024


Abyss is running on 1024 (80 is blocked)
I verifyed with my ISP if port 443 was blocked, it is not.

I'm behind a linksys router where port 443 is open.

What else.. hmm that's all I can think of.

Thanks for your help

I am only able to view your site at https://66.130.84.137/middazed/web

you may need to edit your hosts file (search the forum) or use a proxy server to few your own website as it seems your router doesn't support loopback

Thanks for your response...

I searched the forum relatively to loopback issues and I can't relate to the issue I'm having.. Could you explain briefly why you think my linksys wrk54g does not support loopback ?

Thanks again

It's simple really, not all routers/dsl modems support loopback like my Netcomm NB5. It sucks really but I dont want to buy another router. If you need help configuring ur hosts file I'll gladdy help you.

Thanks for the offer.. I did not find anything on host files or loopback issues. I also called Linksys to ask them if I my router supports loopback.

I'm waiting for a callback or email.

The funny thing is that before installing the stunnel, Abyss was running just fine on port 1024 with domain names pointing to

www.middazed.com --- http://66.130.84.137:1024/middazed/web/
www.accessoiresunik.com --- http://66.130.84.137:1024/christine/web/
www.danyb.com --- http://66.130.84.137:1024/DanyB.com/

At the moment, I have 2 installs of abyss running.

1 - Abyss Web server : running on port 1024
port 1024 is open

2 - Abyss SSL : running on port 1026
ports 443 and 1026 are open for business

As we speak, both servers seem unaccessible whether I use the https or http address, with or wjthout the domain names.

Is it possible to have a loopback problem only when using Stunnel and/or 2 instances of Abyss ?

Thanks !!

olivierp, to my knowledge, all Linksys routers support loopback. Make sure
you have the latest firmware update to your router. (just to be safe)

Also, you didn't mention anything about having a firewall. Is it possible that
is blocking access to the ports?

EDIT - I just referenced one of your other posts in the forum and you mentioned
you don't have a firewall installed. Is your built-in firewall in WinXPpro running?

Moxxnixx,

Yes, it does support it. I now have the latest version of the firmware.
I do not have the windows firewall turned on and the only sort of firewall is avast home edition. Keep in mind that I have been running Abyss for 2 years or so, and installed abyss x1 a few months ago. It was running fine until I installed the Stunnel and the second abyss accordingly to posts in the forum.

I hope to be able to use the stunnel.

Thanks for your time
; )

Anonymoose,

You can UPDATE your tutorial !!!

Use:
http://www.stunnel.org/download/binaries.html stunnel-4.16-installer.exe (or later)
http://www.openssl.org/related/binaries.html OpenSSL for Windows at http://www.slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html
(little bug: set path C:\"your OpenSSL directory"\bin\ in your environment variables to work with OpenSSL in all your directories)

HOWTO:
http://www.openssl.org/docs/HOWTO/

Works great & simpel ...

i seem to have eveything running but with IE 7 it says that my certificate i made at the SSL site:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.


The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.
The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.

is there a way to fix this? i used trustabyss's tutorial off his site.

Where did you buy your SSL-certificate?
The tutorial you used generate a test SSL-certificate to test your STunnel configuration. It's now working, I quess :D

So the only fix for you now is buying a SSL-certificate ...

What's the function on your website for SSL?

Get a free cert from here http://www.cacert.org/

Then install it in your browser. See this for how I did it for Debian using Firefox and IE browsers: http://www.aprelium.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9456&highlight=stunnel
