Securing Oscar by using stunnel in client mode.
On the machine, where you have bitlbee installed , make stunnel listen on localhost:5190 and forward the connection to slogin.icq.com:443
To do that, Install stunnel
- In ubuntu it's available in aptitude by typing "sudo aptitude install stunnel"
A tarball and windows installer can both be found here : http://www.stunnel.org/?page=downloads
In stunnel.conf add :
[oscaricq] client=yes accept = 127.0.0.1:5190 connect = slogin.icq.com:443
In In linux this file is located in "/etc/stunnel". On windows it's located in "%programfiles%\stunnel".
In the BitlBee control channel type:
account icq set server 127.0.0.1
PS , if you have troubles connecting at first , modify this in stunnel.conf as well: "sslVersion = all"
Be sure you use a version of BitlBee where the server variable can be set for oscar connections.
