unable to ftp a user account on a EC2 instance of fc12

I am able to ftp the root of my EC2 instance of fc12 with a private key. However, I am unable to ftp a user account on a EC2 instance of fc12.

I do not know what commands were given to fc12 to create an AMI that uses a private key instead of a password. As root administrator I like it. However, I am trying to set up users in such a way that Windows users using "My Network Places" can access my EC2 instance of fc12.

I have created accounts for my users and set a password for each of them (useradd). The problem is that I am unable to ftp the fc12 server with the user name and password. The error message the client gets when it tries to do so says there is no supported authentication method available.

I presume I must somehow change server security or something to allow access to users with passwords but I do not know how to do this. Can anyone help me? TIA.

You're probably right about the server config, First thing to figure out is which FTP server is running. If you ftp to it via command line, the greeting it may give you software name and version. In Fedora repo I see at least three different FTP servers (proftpd, vsftp, pureftpd), don't know which is the "default".
