I've a Problem using varnish and ssl. I trying to setup varnish to act as
reverse proxy for our website.

I need both unencrypted requests and requests via ssl.

I know that varnish can not accept ssl connections itself. So I tried to setup
stunnel to accept connections. That's not the problem. The problem I have is
that I loose information from which IP the request originated.

Are there plans to include ssl in varnish directly or is there a setup to
retain this information.
