I am trying to map my skydrive account to a drive letter in Windows XP Pro.

I have a suspision that Windows XP has a limitation in mapping UNC paths using SSL.

I have therefore been trying to configure stunnel to handle the SSL connection.

I have failed at doing this. I get the error stunnel 4.34 on win 32 (not configured) Error
I have included the code from my stunnel.conf.txt file and my error message.

These are the two websites I have been refering to to try to make this work.

I can map the drive without the @ssl and be able to view the files but cannot edit or create files. Obviously I want full access to the share.

Can you please help me figure out Stunnel.

; Some options used here may not be adequate for your particular configuration

; Certificate/key is needed in server mode and optional in client mode
; The default certificate is provided only for testing and should not
; be used in a production environment
cert = stunnel.pem
;key = stunnel.pem

; Some performance tunings
socket = l:TCP_NODELAY=1
socket = r:TCP_NODELAY=1

; Workaround for Eudora bug
;options = DONT_INSERT_EMPTY_FRAGMENTS

; Authentication stuff
;verify = 0
; Don't forget to c_rehash CApath
;CApath = certs
; It's often easier to use CAfile
;CAfile = certs.pem
; Don't forget to c_rehash CRLpath
;CRLpath = crls
; Alternatively you can use CRLfile
;CRLfile = crls.pem

; Some debugging stuff useful for troubleshooting
;debug = 7
;output = stunnel.log

; Use it for client mode
;client = yes

; Service-level configuration

It looks like there a few "commented" lines you need to remove.

On line 18, remove the semi-colon from the beginning of the line.
Remove the semi-colon from the beginning of line 33 as well.

Then start stunnel, and try to connect again. Let me know how this goes!
