    I've been trying to set up an FTP server on EC2 amazon web services. I set up a Ubuntu instance (free option) then connected this to Filezilla client. I can now freely exchange files between any machine and my instance using filezilla on SFTP...

    I still have a few questions however..

    1) I'm supposed to be creating an FTP server not a client, which I think i've done as anybody can access provided they have the correct details, so does Ubuntu come with a pre-configured server?
    2) Is Ubuntu secure? I know SFTP is secure in it's own right but is this hidden server capability secure?

    I know the way these questions are phrased show my lack of knowledge, so please go easy on me..
