In FOS package there are 2 zip files , one is FOS which contains images for all supported swicthes , the second file
contains 3CDaemon software for Windows
That 3CDaemon acts as locally FTP service.
After proper configuration you will be very easy to upgrade firmware on switch and that's the best way to do that
As I remember for SCP there's software WinSCP which should work well.

Well , you can do small work-around:
I presume you know switch all IP details , so...you can use some switch even home class (linksys,dlink) and setup network in such way so you wouldn't have to change ip on switch , then just assign proper ip on laptop so you could ping switch , then use Brocade 3CDaemon tool ;) , am not saying it's good solution but it will work however I don't know what will your manager say for that

I agree with Robert, if scp fails, the fastest way would be to connect directly to each switch and upgrade it via ftp. There shouldn't be any security problem since you would not be using the corporate network.

The answer is likley that you need to have both CP's hooked up to the network in the same subnet and both need to have access to your SCP server. Otherwise you'll have to do it one-by-one with the -s parameter.
Secondly, be aware that firmware maintenance is a customer responsibility. Vendors are not obligated to maintain this side of the fence unless it is explicitly mentioned in the support-contract. (of which I'm sure around 99.9% isn't).
Thirdly the 48K does not support FOS 7.x so 6.4.x is your latest option.
Hope this helps.

I had a similar issue with scp. I had to configure ftp in our test and development and that worked but scp still didn't.
Funny thing was that scp worked a couple of months earlier so I looked into /etc/ssh/sshd_config (Linux).
If You change these:
# To disable tunneled clear text passwords, change to no here!
and restart sshd, scp works again...
