I thought that I should create a post for this as there are a number of people who are connecting from off-campus using stunnel.

It is better to connect directly, rather than using stunnel if you are off-campus.

Also, in order to connect correctly [and get search working fully] you will probably need to forward ports for both TCP and UDP [searches use UDP, downloads use TCP]

Also, please rememember to use passive mode only as a last resort as it is considerably inferior to active mode.

There is a guide of how to set up port forwarding and other connection stuff at
