Brocade Silkworm 3800 firmware download?

We were given this switch to use in our SAN Fabric. I'm having trouble finding the latest firmware online for it. Does anyone know what the newest version is for this switch and where I might download it?

Thank you.

I have a Brocade 3800 switch running OS Version 3.2.0. Can I download the latest level of OS from the link supplied in the earlier post? It seems to be a HP link.

Yes, this is the same FOS release as GA = General Available.

HP, IBM, EMC etc.... all Hardware and FOS Release are the same... Brocade, excepted Customer Specific Release, but this Release are not Available for Download.

Approx. 10 Minutes, after upgrade you must reboot the switch.

Yes, you can Upgrade from 3.2.0 to 3.2.1c without intermediate Upgrade.

Thanks for the quick response, I will schedule some downtime and update both switches.
