Hi,

download the appropriate RPM packages from http://www.perzl.org and install them using the rpm tool which comes with AIX.

I would have said start with Large Open Source Software Archive for AIX : Zip and pick the version appropriate for you, but there are no 6.1 packages there.

AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications has zip packages, but I can't see a AIX version number.

You _MAY_ find that 5.1 packages are compatible.

ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/unix/aix/ goes up to AIX 5L

But ftp://www.oss4aix.org/latest/aix61/ (via woolmilkporc's link) seems to be good too.

Download these packages:

http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/unzip/unzip-64bit-6.0-3.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/zip/zip-3.0-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
http://www.oss4aix.org/download/RPMS/bzip2/bzip2-1.0.6-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm

Don't worry about the "aix5.1" stuff in the filenames. It's compatible!

Put them into a directory of your choice (I'll use "/path/to/download/location" as a placeholder below) on the AIX box.

Attention: If you download them to Windows to transfer them to AIX via FTP afterwards it's mandatory to use "binary" transfer mode!

Done this issue

cd /path/to/download/location
rpm -ivh bzip2/bzip2-1.0.6-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
rpm -ivh zip-3.0-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
rpm -ivh unzip-64bit-6.0-3.aix5.1.ppc.rpm

Now you'll find "zip" and "unzip" in /opt/freeware/bin and links to them in /usr/bin.

Issue "zip --help" or "unzip --help" to see the syntax.

FYI.  'zip' and 'unzip' come with oracle binaries will work straight away.  These can be copied across the AIX servers, if you like.  Actually, there is no need to install any package for this.
