The guide how to use FTP Server on Ubuntu 21.04

 To work, you must open port 20, 21, 60000-65535 (TCP) in the network properties in the AWS firewall.

  1. To work with the server, you should connect to it via PuTTY (Download PuTTY)
  2. Go to the home page of “Session”, enter the IP address of the VM
  3. Go to section SSH on the left panel, and then in Auth. In the “Auth” section, click “Browse” and specify the path to the .ppk file you received earlier.
  1. In the console that opens, you must enter the standard login that appears when creating a virtual machine – ubuntu

Or use the username you provided after creating the virtual machine.

  1. To create a new user, use the command

            sudo useradd -m username

            Where username is the name that the user comes up with

  1. To create a password, use the command

sudo passwd username

Where username is the ftp user created in the previous step

Important: When entering a password for security purpose, it will not be displayed, also password has to be a maximum of 8 characters. If you enter a password with more than 8 characters, it will be shortened. While entering a password in the ftp client, only the first 8 characters will be taken.
