What exactly are you trying to achieve? Are you trying to lock down access to the management port?

Having done some research, TCP Forwarding does not appear to be supported by the console of a Brocade switch. It's a TCP/IP function and is not part of the Fibre Channel protocol.

AFAIK Fibre Channel IP address is only used if you want to manage it in-band instead of through the Ethernet port, see http://forums13.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?admit=109447627+1282570892759+28353475&threadId=1107111 for example. I've never used it, just left it at thedefault of "none".
