Vb6 code for Amazon S3 Simple Storage Solution

Looking for working Vb6 code to access Amazon S3 Simple Storage Solution via HTTP.
I have a AccessKey and SecretKey that I have been using with JungleDisk for several years.
I have tried sample code at http://blog.gobansaor.com/2008/02/22/xlaws-excel-vba-code-for-accessing-amazons-s3-and-simpledb/ but it is not working (Error - "The request signature we calculated does not match the signature you provided. Check your key and signing method.").

Class for HMAC_SHA256 was found here. Added method for HMAC_SHA1 which was confirmed OK via online HMAC_SHA1 generators.
http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?t=635398

The problem is putting all the pieces together correctly for the request. HMAC_SHA1, Base64, MD5, etc.
Currently trying with CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP") Open/Send

Looking for any of the following:
1. GetService - Retrieve bucket names.
2. GET file info
3. Download file.
4. Upload file.
5. How is versioning handled.

Already looked there. Amazon has SDK and API for Java, .Net, and other languages but nothing for Vb6. Looked at cSocketMaster for communicating with server but I don't think it is 100% reliable. Looks like it is going to be a chore to put this all together.

also note that its a paid service, and as such if you develop for it without something like an api key, you program might not work as expected

As mentioned in first post I have the keys for Amazon S3 since I have been using the service for several years via JungleDisk client.
It is a paid service but it's very cheap and I think new users get 5Gb free.
See http://aws.amazon.com/s3/#pricing

Thanks for those links. I was already able to connect using legacy Hmac_Sha1 crypto. Now I'm off to implementing the more secure Hmac_Sha256.
