SSH/SSL wrapper


My IRC client does not support SSL, so I was wondering if there was any other way to encrypt the information between SSL clients on an IRC network, maybe by using SSH to enter the IRC program or something (it's a command-line program) and passing all the plain-text through SSH first. I tried stunnel but for the love of my life could not get it to work. I used the default conf in /etc/stunnel/ and commented out the key line towards the beginning since it's optional as a client. Then I generated the certificate or whatever with the script that was in /etc/stunnel/ and that worked fine. Next I did:
Code:
stunnel /etc/stunnel/stunnel.conf -c -d localhost:6697 -r irc.server.net:6697
It ran without any errors or warnings, and so I fired up my IRC client, then I tried to connect to the server (irc.server.net for this example), port 6697 and the connection was refused
I want to chat with everyone else with SSL! Please help me

I was gonna suggest stunnel, but I've never used it.

mIRC, XChat and irssi all support SSL.. what IRC client are you using?

ircII-2.8.2

I don't like any of the other clients I've tried (like over a dozen and a half probably)
