Python interface to stunnel

Project description

Overview

Start and stop a stunnel instance given a stunnel configuration file.

The stunnel executable must be available on the system PATH. The configuration file must specify a PID file.

Installation

Use your favorite installer to install the pystunnel library and script. E.g.:

$ pip install pystunnel

Examples

From the command line:

$ pystunnel -c /path/to/stunnel.conf start
started
$ pystunnel -c /path/to/stunnel.conf check
running
$ pystunnel -c /path/to/stunnel.conf stop
stopped

If the command is omitted, pystunnel enters an interactive shell:

$ pystunnel -c /path/to/stunnel.conf
pystunnel> start
started
pystunnel> check
running
pystunnel> stop
stopped
pystunnel> quit
$

From Python:

from pystunnel import Stunnel
stunnel = Stunnel("/path/to/stunnel.conf")

rc = stunnel.start()
print("stunnel started with rc", rc)

if stunnel.check() == 0:
    print("stunnel is running with pid", stunnel.getpid())
else:
    print("stunnel is not running")

rc = stunnel.stop()
print("stunnel stopped with rc", rc)

Return Codes

0 means OK, 1 or higher means error.
