Connection problem when stunnel is run on boot time in Ubuntu

If you are using stunnel in client mode you may experience connection problems when connecting to your stunnel services.
To avoid these problems make the following changes in your stunnel.conf file:

  1. Comment out the following line: chroot = /var/lib/stunnel4/
  2. Update pid file location with this: pid = /var/lib/stunnel4/
  3. Add delay = yes into the service configuration

In this case DNS lookup will be done when the service is needed for the first time.
