Not that I know of. SSL is very different from SSL-tunneling (what a
proxy does).

In SSL-tunneling the SSL request is encapsulated in a HTTP request with
method CONNECT.

The good news is that you probably don't need it. If you are
accelerating one server then a plain TCP plug is what you want.

To accelerate multiple servers you need to have the same amount of
accelerating IP addresses as you have IP addresses on your accelerated
