The simplest way is to install an FTP in4codes_amazon-ec2 service on your EC2 host, open port 21 in4codes_amazon-ec2 in the firewall and Security Group, and in4codes_amazon-ec2 use your FTP client of choice on Win7 to in4codes_amazon-ec2 push the data up.
For bonus points, use SFTP instead over in4codes_amazon-ec2 port 22. You don’t mention the EC2 host in4codes_amazon-ec2 OS, but if it’s Windows you can use in4codes_amazon-ec2 msftpsvr on the host and FileZilla on in4codes_amazon-ec2 Win7.

- Launch putty. Linux users can simply launch the terminal.
scp -i /path/to/PEM_File /path/to/file [email protected]_address.amazonaws.com:/path/to/copy
If you’re looking for something UI in4codes_amazon-ec2 based, I’d go with Filezilla.

These are all valid ways but not by far in4codes_amazon-ec2 the simplest. For small files, once you in4codes_amazon-ec2 are connected to your E2C remotely it’s in4codes_amazon-ec2 as simple as copy/paste or drag/drop in4codes_amazon-ec2 from your pc to your remotely connected in4codes_amazon-ec2 E2C to copy your files over. For larger in4codes_amazon-ec2 files that may not copy this way you can in4codes_amazon-ec2 easily add the volume your files exist in4codes_amazon-ec2 on as an available local resource then in4codes_amazon-ec2 you will simply copy the files from in4codes_amazon-ec2 drive to drive on the E2C directly.
- After launching remote desktop before connecting – click ‘show options’
- On the Local Resources tab under ‘Local devices and resources’ click ‘More…’
- Put a check in the resource you want to be available and click ‘OK’
- Connect as usual and your resource will now be available on the E2C to copy from.
