You have mysql running on the remote client box.. If you change the port to
something different say 3305 instead of 3306, or shutoff the local mysql
server this error should go away.

Subject: [Snort-users] Error starting stunnel


I'm trying to setup an stunnel between barnyard and mysql or mudpit and
I've created the certs and using the stunnel.conf's which I have found
during that list but if I start stunnel with:
stunnel /etc/stunnel/stunnel.conf on server and client I get the following
error (reported from client):

Error binding 3307 to
Bind: Adress already in use (98)

Does anyone know what's going wrong and can help me to correct it?

Here are the confs:

Stunnel.conf from the database server: 
cert = /etc/stunnel/mysql.pem
pid =
client = no
CAfile = /etc/stunnel/cmysql.cert
verify = 3
accept = 3307
connect = 3306 

Stunnel.conf from the remote sensors: 
pid =
foreground = yes
cert = /etc/stunnel/cmysql.pem
CAfile = /etc/stunnel/mysql.cert
verify = 3
client = yes
accept = 3306
connect = ip.ofthe.database.server:3307
