comment how to share Linux user passwords and Samba passwords
That is also my impression, but it would be helpful to know for sure. Hence my question.

comment how to share Linux user passwords and Samba passwords
I have tried to do that, but it seems to require the Windows client sending the password in cleartext (samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/…) or a password synchronization mechanism that appears to work only in one direction (samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/…), both rather suboptimal workarounds in my view.

To do what? To replace all use of /etc/passwd with the use of the password file managed by smbpasswd?

@mjk It's being modded down because HTTP proxies don't proxy SSH traffic.

comment FTP to SFTP/SCP proxy?
A workaround that may suffice when local filesystem access is supported: pretend that the remote filesystem is local (e.g. using SFTP as a Windows drive, see superuser.com/q/66470/11317).

comment Login with SSH user that has no password set
This is a little confused: 1) su is not sudo 2) with sudo the "as root" does not apply. While using su is an option, I (as a former Unix sysadmin) would rather see a focus on the use of sudo.
