it is possible that ftp is disabled on your Aix server.

To confirm that ftp is not disable check your /etc/inetd.conf file
issue

more /etc/inetd.conf

if # is in front of this line that means ftp is disabled

ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/sbin/in.ftpd in.ftpd

if this is the case remove the # to enable ftp
and issue
kill -HUP (inetd process id)

or

Try to ftp to the Aix server or from the Aix server and
check /var/adm/messages or syslog for any error message

Post back any error message I might be a able to help
