To connect to EC2 instance using Filezilla, follow the given steps:

  1. Edit (Preferences) > Settings > Connection > SFTP, Click "Add key file”
  2. Browse to the location of your .pem file and select it.
  3. A message box will appear asking your permission to convert the file into ppk format. 
  4. Click Yes and then give the file a name and store it somewhere.
  5. If the new file is shown in the list of Keyfiles, then continue to the next step. If not, then click "Add keyfile" and select the converted file.
  6. Go to File > Site Manager  and then add a new site with the following parameters:

    Host: Put your public dns name of ec2 instance, or the public ip address of the server

    Protocol: SFTP

    User: By default, it will be ec2-user. For Ubuntu, its will be ubuntu, root for Linux

Thank You in advance.

This doesn’t work.  First of all, there’s no window popping up asking me to convert formats. Second, I get this: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic)
This error means you sshd isn't functioning as it is suppossed to. go to sshd_config file and change the password Authentication from no to yes. and restart the system.
Thanks, @Priyank. Your solution worked for me!
