As to the question of using stunnel on the client to connect to a Jabber
server via SSL, IIRC, the LMHOSTS entry is the only way to get this to work,
short of changing the client software.

Speaking of Jabber via SSL, I am interested in determining what changes need
to be made to a Jabber client for it to become 'proxy aware', and work
correctly with a HTTP proxy. My proxy server listens on port 80 and is
SSL aware.  I'm having little luck finding definitons of how the
client->proxy interaction is supposed to work.

My proxy server works with the AIM client when I check 'connect using proxy'
in the 'Connection' tab and choose 'HTTPS' as the proxy protocol. I'd like
to see similar functionality in JabberIM or even a commercial Windows client.
