The IBM Secureway Firewall for AIX comes with a socksified ftp and telnet (rftp & rtelnet). You can download the demo code from http://www-4.ibm.com/software/security/firewall/downloads/ and get the commands from there.
You will need to configure the /etc/socks.conf for the commands to work with the firewall.

Thanks Markus, but I've tried that before you answered me. I suppose that my actual problem is the configuration of socks.conf file. Can you help me with this?

Kurgan,

here my /etc/socks.conf file:
---
direct 62.184.160.0 255.255.254.0
direct 62.186.0.0 255.255.0.0
sockd @=62.184.175.2 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0
---

I have two subnets inside the firewall.
The two direct statements define them (direct subnet-ip netmask)
The sockd statement defines the firewall (sockd @=firewall-ip 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0)

You could define multiple firewalls for multiple destinations, but you don't need that.

Just replace the above IP adresses with what you have and it should work fine. You need a working DNS as well. If 'host www.ibm.com' works this is probably fine.
