comment Mounting an Amazon EC2 instance on Mac OS X
I'm not tied to any particular protocol (ftps, sftp, etc). That being the case, is there a native way to mount an Amazon EC2 instance? If not, does your solution work for EC2?

I can use an sftp client to connect to the machine so I assume it's enabled.

Yes, for example, I can use an sftp client to connect to the machine, I just can't mount it with "Connect to server". It asks for a username and password (for a registered user) and it's root/[blank] which it doesn't accept. The other option is "Guest" which brings up an empty folder in the finder.

Unfortunately no, I can't add a password to the root account. I'm afraid to even try in case it doesn't let me remove it.

I did try ftps://root@[IPAddressOfEC2Instance]

Tried that as well... I think perhaps it has to do with the PermitEmptyPasswords ssh_config setting or similar.
