Stealth proxy vs Stunnel

Rate this question

Question

Since the update of the Windows client, I have been intrigued by the Stunnel feature. I'm a noob, so I hope somebody can explain to me, in layman's terms, the difference between Torguard's Stealth Proxy and Stunnel features? Which is better in protecting privacy, for example, when downloading torrents?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Stunnel  is an encryption wrapper between a client and a server. It listens on the port specified in its configuration file, encrypts the communication with the client, and forwards the data to the original daemon listening on its usual port, which in our case is OpenVPN. This way we can add an additional SSL layer to the encryption you already use through OpenVPN improving the security of the service even further.

Both are good options - the shadowsocks (stealth proxy) will be removed in our next release - we find it slower than stunnel and less adequate at bypassing certain firewalls.
