Mr. Bee, you could use stunnel in the meantime, and look into 
implementing fcgi into simpleserver? :)

What's your objective? Small servers like mini_httpd can be made to run 
freepascal binaries with little fuss, and would be sufficient for 
everything up until professional usage. At which point I would advise 
using apache or nginx anyways.

Michael, neat, didn't know that was in there. Will have to check it out.
