Web Tools and serial connection

I have an older Brocade 5000 SAn switch (not sure of the FW) that I am not able to connect to our network because it has some vulnerabilities.


Looking at the Brocade 5000 Hardware Reference manual, there is a table that shows that the Brocade Advanced Web Tools can be used for Out-of-Band support with the serial connection


I am lookig for some guidelines on how to do this.  This manual shows how to make a serial connection when setting up the switch and refers me to the Advanced Web Tools Administrators guide, but there are no instructions here either.


Has anyone ever doen this or is it even possible?
