I have an AWS Windows Remote machine running Windows Server 2012, and I have set up an ftp server there with authenticated user, and I tired to access that FTP server in a browser in the same machine.
But I actually tried to access the same server in my laptop (outside of remote) and I wasn't able to access it. I tried in both FileZilla and browser and both didn't work. I checked the firewall and the FTP Inbound rule are enabled.
In FileZilla, I get 'Connection timeout, Could not connect to server' error message when I tried to access in port 21.
I don't know much about networking, but any idea what I am missing here? I want to access my FTP server via Internet? Will there be any restrictions from AWS (EC2 Instance) since I created a ftp server in an AWS Remote machine? Please advise.
Note: I did add Port 21 to Inbound and Outbound in Security Group tab in the portal.
