Multiple instances of stunnel.exe causing connection failure

Recommended Posts

I am consistently running into this problem on all my PCs (laptops).  Over a period of time, I notice that AirVPN is disconnected and is constantly trying to reconnect.  Checking the Windows Task Manager, I discover that multiple instances of stunnel.exe are running: the longer AirVPN is running, the more instances of stunnel (at time 2 or 3 dozens).


Initially this behaviour can be reproduced by putting the PC to sleep while AirVPN is still connected.  Upon waking, it starts the re-connection and fails, creating more and more stunnel.exe in the memory. 


Now however, I notice that AirVPN would spontaneously disconnect (I've set my PCs to stay awake constantly), and get into this rut. 


Other than manually ending all the instances of stunnel.exe (as well as the 1 instance of openvpn.exe), I'd have to do a full reboot. 


Does anyone notice this and know a fix?


Thanks all!
