How AWS Transfer Family Differs for AWS GovCloud (US)

  • PUBLIC and VPC_ENDPOINT endpoint types are not supported. Only VPC endpoint type is supported, for both internet and internet facing access. For more information, see Creating a server in a virtual private cloud in the AWS Transfer Family User Guide.

  • If you are providing your end users access to your endpoint using a custom hostname, you need to map your endpoint’s IP addresses to the custom domain using Amazon Route 53 or any DNS provider. If you use a hostname registered with Route 53, there are some DNS limitations. For more information about using Route 53 for GovCloud endpoints, see Setting Up Amazon Route 53 with Your AWS GovCloud (US) Resources.
