Help with Getting Stunnel Running

OS: Sun Solaris 10 (5.10)

Stunnel has been installed but when I try to run it, I get a directory permission error. Not sure what it means by 'Not owner' even though that's plain English.

I have changed the chroot to a directory (var/tmp) that I'm sure all users have access to so not sure what's going on? I have also tried to change to a directory that is owned by my user; but same problem.

Any help is appreciated.


drwxrwxrwt 8 root sys 512 Sep 20 19:42 tmp
drwxrwx--T 3 user stunnel 512 Sep 20 16:13 stunnel


chroot = /var/tmp/stunnel/
setuid = nobody
setgid = nogroup
; PID is created inside chroot jail
pid = /
