How do I run an executable on AIX using FTP

I am using FTP to connect to an RS6000 and I need to run an executable on the RS6000 from within the FTP script.

What I am looking for is the AIX equivalent of the RCMD available when FTPing onto an AS/400 (ie. run a system command on the remote system).

Does anyone know whether this can be done?

(the RS6000 is currently using AIX 5.1)

not possible with ftp (except you have a special ftpd which supports such things).
Use rsh, or better ssh for that.
