I'm quoting the Capabilities support part:

Caveat: CAP_NET_ADMIN does give sslh too many rights, e.g. configuring the interface. If you're not going to use transparent proxying, just don't use it (or use the libcap method).

@seblu yep, I should've been more specific. Can you compile sslh with USELIBCAP=1? That will eliminate caveat you mentioned ;)
