[Others]Connecting to server instance using FileZilla
Created#More Posted time:Aug 3, 2016 16:23 PM
I'm trying to download Python 3 onto my new Centos 7 server instance and was thinking of using FileZilla to facilitate the transfer of the setup files.
However I'm unable to connect to my server using FileZilla. SSH works fine though.
I came across the chinese documentation and it looks like there are some differences in the console when it comes to account management.
It appears to me that an account has to be created specifically for FTP? Is my understanding correct?
If so, how do I go about doing that?

In default ，ECS is a pure server ，there is no ftp server configured.
If you want to use ftp ,please setup a ftp server as well as a physical server .
By the way ，the Centos 7 opened firewall in default ，if you want open ftp port ，make sure turn off firewall as command：systemctl stop firewalld.service

Do you an easy to use solution with FTP already setup? We're newbies to the server world.

You can get help from MarketPlace:
You also can search from internet such as:
yum install -y vsftpd
service vsftpd start
service vsftpd restart
chkconfig vsftpd on
useradd -d /path/you/want -s /sbin/nologin ftpadmin
chown -R ftpadmin.ftpadmin /path/you/set

It is possible to connect to the ECS instance via Filezilla. Use the sftp protocol, which runs over the SSH protocol. Just beware the default SFTP port number is the SSH port 22.

To access it via Filezilla, remember to use sftp and port 22.
It may be happening due to an issue with your security rules and firewalls.
You can whitelist port 22 as below:
See the screenshots
By following above steps, you can easily make Filezilla working.
