I am trying to setup an RPC connection between monerod and monero-wallet-cli over SSL. For monerod, the recommended way seems to be to use nginx as a reverse proxy and add SSL support there. How do I use this SSL connection from monero-wallet-cli (and/or the GUI wallet too)?

Once you have setup the tunnel, it is equivalent to having monerod running in localhost. It is transparent for monero-wallet-cli and monero-wallet-gui.

The only difference, that i noticed so far, is that it doesn't accurately detect network failures, as the connexion with the tunnel manager stays up.

You can see here an example of setup using stunnel.

    So the answer is that the client DOES NOT support SSL connections but an external program can be used (such as stunnel) that can provide these services.
