a quick question. We have a 5100 brocade switch intalled an I would need to know:
Does this platform support FCIP and/or iFCP?
Does this platform support routing?
If yes which license I would need to buy, if no, which platform do we need to establish FCIP connectivity with another SAN site?
Here below the installed firmware and license
Appl Primary/Secondary Versions
Enhanced Group Management license
8 Gig FC license
Thanks in advance.

--->>> Does this platform support FCIP and/or iFCP?

here all supported Feature in the 5100
Note: Some fabric services do not apply or are unavailable in Brocade Access Gateway mode
--->>>If yes which license I would need to buy....
IR= Integrated Routing License for the 5100
In order to use FCIP you need a 7500 / 7800 Switch or equivalent Director Blade. If you want to buy a 7500 / 7800 not make sense to Purchase a IR License for the 5100.
