Seems like they are using *IMPLICIT on their SSL connection.
So you can connect, but the AUTHTLS command fails as they are using a cipher suite that you do not support. Call them and find out what cipher suites they support and make sure it is in your system value.
The following command on your iSeries should work:
FTP RMTSYS('126.96.36.199') PORT(21) SECCNN(*SSL)

Yes, Filezilla works fine with the info given.
Does not connect using telnet
I did the following command
open 188.8.131.52 21
Message received: Failed to connect
telnet 184.108.40.206 21
Got a telnet window with message "220 220.127.116.11 FTP server ready"
I typed status, and got the 550 SSL/TLs required on the control channel
