Scenario:

Central Log-Server(logserv)- only private IP interfaces

Multiple client servers (logclient)- has public IPs.

Requirement:

Need to tcp logs of syslog application from various logclients to logserv.

Is this possible to achieve this using "stunnel", like its normally implemented via reverse tunnelling with ssh and autossh? Is reverse tunnelling possible with "stunnel".

The idea behind going for tunnel was to avoid giving logserv a public IP to prevent public access. Once a reverse tunnel was made, then transferring logs from logclients to logserv would be possible. But not sure if it will work using stunnel.

Kindly advise.
