What FTP package is installed?   For FTPS, the following may be used.

http://lftp.yar.ru/   (LFTP)

For Testing, 'Curl' may be used.

I would start with simply trying the session with Master Server, since this is the final purpose. Or you can grab any SSL-capable client listed at http://download.pureftpd.org/pub/pure-ftpd/doc/README.TLS, for example CoreFTP, and try to connect to your server by SSL.

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.

In my post, I used windows-based client, totally different, and only as an example of what to look for. Presumably, your lftp also produces some log, like every ftp client does, and that's where you will find the lines similar to my example. You will probably find out where the log is created in the documentation on lftp.

Probably for the two months, the purpose has changed sufficiently from "Successfully installed lftp on AIX 5.3 as clinet" to "its not solved my purpose" to suggest C grade.
