debian - How to configure SFTP at amazon EC2 WITHOUT key file

  • Davi Reinoldo

    My EC2 server running a Debian distribution: Debian GNU/Linux 6.0

    I need to connect dreamweaver to an Amazon EC2 instance but it is not working with keys. I need do configure my server to work without key pairs. I want to connect at my server with a simple form.

    Key pairs are secure but annoying. How can I do this? What modifications I do on the server?

    Set up an FTP service on your instance. You won't need a key, only a username + password. Make sure to open the appropriate port in the AWS firewall.

    How do I create an ami for openSUSE in Amazon ec2?
  • jgaa

    I need to scale some services from local servers to Amazon ec2. The current production-environment is based on the latest openSUSE. In order to keep things simple, I want to run the instances in ec2 in the same environment.

    However, I'm unable to find any public SUSE ami's or even howto's on this subject. I've seen a few similar questions in different forums, without any resolutions.

    So actually, I have two questions.

    1) Is this at all doable? 2) If, so, is there any documentation / howto's available somewhere?
