Hi All,

Another Penetration Testing noob here, great forum

I am currently trying to teach myself how to Penetration Test and I have a question regarding the use encryption wrappers to slip under Intrusion Prevention/Detection Systems. I have seen mentioned somewhere that stunnel can be used to effectivley hide any traffic from being picked up by an IPS.

However, I can only seem to find an installer .exe for stunnel. Is there a single .exe that I can just file transfer into the system32 folder on the target machine? Or is a remote install required? If so, could someone point me in the right direction for me to learn how to do this?

Is stunnel even the way to go? Is there a better way to circumvent IPS to obtain a shell?
