I know

FCIP - Fibre Channel over IP protocol.

and

FCoE - Fibre Channel over 10 Gbit/sec Ethernet networks.

FCIP is only supported in FCR Switches, like the Brocade AP7500 / FR4-18i  / AP7420

FCoE is Supported in the Brocade 8000

Yup, these would be transmitting FC over IP- or Etnernet. I wanted to transmit IP over FC. (IPFC)

To you question, No this is Direct not Supported.
