Here is what I have: -

OpenStack Havana installed in Ubuntu 12.04.4 Server

I have successfully launched a Ubuntu Cloud image's instance in OpnenStack.

I can successfully PING/SSH to my instance via my OpenStack's host, that is Ubuntu 12.04.4 Server.

What I want is that to upload files to Ubuntu instance from my OpenStack's host using FileZilla(I know it supports SFTP).

When I try to connect it says.

Connection timed out

Note: - FileZilla is installed on my Ubuntu which is hosting my OpenStack and I can successfully SSH to my instance from here

If SSH is working, then can you try to do using cli scp for file transfer then manual cli sftp and check if you are getting any error. Also provide proper user name & key pair for login from both cli & gui. If there is no issue with cli then troubleshoot your GUI tool FileZilla for proper configuration.

Where do I set SSH key that I have, in FileZilla?

Settings -> Connection -> SFTP -> add key

It could be possible to convert your pem key to a public/private pair key through puttygen application.
