Fix error connecting to FTP via FileZilla ( Running server on EC2 instance)

I am running my server on an EC2 instance and installed cPanel/WHM on that server. Whenever i try to connect to FTP using FileZilla I get an error message:

Command: MLSD

Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity

Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

Also see screenshot.

Can you fix this issue so I can log in successfully?
