FTPS client functionality in AIX? (FTP-TLS/ FTP-SSL


I have a client that requiers secure FTP transfers for sending data to me.  My FTP server supports FTPS and I've configured it to accept FTPS using FTP over SSL (Explicit).  

This client wants to be able to setup automated transfers on his server to my FTP site.  His server is running AIX, and his management won't let him install any software on the server.  They're completely inflexible and if I can't get this guy to be able to connect to my FTPS (SSL) server, we'll be at an impass, as it would require me to convert all kinds of things at the expense of other clients time/frustration.  

The client's AIX system has an SFTP client built-in but he doesn't know if it has a FTPS client.

Basically, is there a native way for this guy's AIX server to connect to my FTPS (ftp over ssl) server?  


Thanks,
-K

Here's an example of the FTP over SSL session log. The server is of course different since I don't haev AIX, but the FTP should be the same. I have highlighted the pieces that tell that it's indeed secure session.
