comment Samba: Access trouble from Windows
You're losing me - I'm not understanding what you're saying. I asked earlier " If you log in to the Linux system as the unix user you've mapped the samba user to, are you able to cd into the directory you're sharing and get a list of files? Also, ensure that the unix user you've mapped to is in the "users" group." What was the outcome of that?

Yes, that's right... -L just shows a list of shares but not their contents. It looks like a permissions issue to me. You didn't comment on the other suggestions I made though... either check that out, or remove the valid users = @users line in smb.conf, set the directory to perms 777, and then one step at a time tighten up the permissions to how you want it, troubleshooting as you go.

If smbclient -L works but you cant get a list of files in the share, then I wonder if the unix user account that the samba account is mapped to has permissions to that directory. If you log in to the Linux system as the unix user you've mapped the samba user to, are you able to cd into the directory you're sharing and get a list of files? Also, ensure that the unix user you've mapped to is in the "users" group. Use the command "groups <username>" to see what groups that user account belongs to.

comment FTP v/s SFTP v/s FTPS
Plus SFTP operates through a single port only (22). Less issues with firewalls and configuration of them.

comment AWS VPC - why have a private subnet at all?
Thanks. VPC with pubic+private subnet seems the way to go if AWS would throw in a NAT instance for free. I'm thinking of small deployments and was trying to figure out if the cost of a NAT instance every month was worth the advantages of the 2 subnet config.
