how can i upgrade a Brcd 5000 & 300b from a windows host without using FTP or SCP?

I have no SCP or FTP access in the facility where my brcd 5000 and 300 switches are located. Is there a way to push the OS to the switch or use a  IE on Windows. In testing the path to the root drive does not seem to work.

Hi,

In newer switchs, you can use Brocade-branded USB to upgrade the switch. Besides that, SCP/FTP are the protocols to use.
