    Can anyone provide a step by step on installing stunnel on the latest firmware?

    Basically what I need to do is tunnel an SSH connection through SSL traffic. I just can't wrap my head around this stuff.

    Are you having trouble compiling it, installing/configuring it, or using it?

    Basically, yes.

    As a newb, I was just wondering if there is some way to just plug it in and it works.

    Unfortunately, not a chance in hell. :) SSL certificates don't appear like magic, and there's a good bit of fine-tuning required at the configuration level. In short, you may well have picked one of the most complex packages (next to OpenVPN) to deploy. =)

    I kinda expected something like that.

    Any chance in starting me off by outlining how to install it first? I tried installing it on my NAS (DNS-323) but couldn't get it to work properly. Was hoping it would be easier on the router.

    The NAS basically is the same underlying OS as the router, and how to install it depends entirely on what you are trying to achieve (procedurally and technically). I'm assuming you've started off with the basics (i.e. read and understand the documentation including the man page, are conversant with ssh and Linux CLI in general, etc.)? If not, you may want to seriously consider seeking some in-person local assistance with this (read: your neighborhood Linux geek ;), because it will be extremely challenging to explain a detailed configuration like this over an international web site. =) (I'm not trying to dissuade you, I'm just being frank and pragmatic about the relative difficulty level...this is not trivial even on Ubuntu, and I think that pretty much says it all :)
