    By default your server will not have an FTP server running.  You can install one like vsftpd for most Linux distributions:  https://www.godaddy.com/help/how-to-set-up-an-ftp-server-on-ubuntu-1404-12301

    Also, you might try transferring files over SSH for instance using scp.  Tools like Filezilla allow file transfer over SSH just use port 22.  And make sure your are using your username to connect and selecting a destination folder where your user has write access.
