OK, one of those annoying problems. You want / need an FTP server. Usually this is easy. I have build dozens of them, so an FTP server on Amazon a doddle you would think.
There are a few FTP servers that I use VSFTPD and PureFTP
I started with VSFTP as this is pretty easy to use.
yum install vsftpd
service vsftpd start
Open filezilla and FTP to the server. Because it is a default install anonymous is allowed you get a connection wow it works.
Issue an ls or LIST for the pub directory and then the pain starts.
