I'm trying to setup Wireshark ssl debugging, and to do this, I'm trying to follow instructions in this article.

I'm currently at stunnel part, and I'm trying to execute

sudo stunnel -p ps.pem -d 443 -r 8080

The output of this is

Clients allowed=500
stunnel 4.53 on i686-pc-linux-gnu platform
Compiled/running with OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
Reading configuration from file -p
-p: No such file or directory (2)
Cannot read configuration

stunnel [<filename>] ] -fd <n> | -help | -version | -sockets
    <filename>  - use specified config file
    -fd <n>     - read the config file from a file descriptor
    -help       - get config file help
    -version    - display version and defaults
    -sockets    - display default socket options
str_stats: 1 block(s), 3 data byte(s), 34 control byte(s)

This is probably not what is expected in this case.

How do I properly use stunnel with the provided certificate?

you have to make stunnel config file man stunnel. The article you provided seems outdated –  eicto Nov 9 '12 at 19:40
Does this stunnel come with your linux install? Post output stunnel -help. –  John Siu Nov 10 '12 at 4:11
