Brocade Switch: Finding An IP Address When You Know The Physical Port

Just something quick here.  I asked a customer what the IP address of a particular server was.  I actually knew what port on the Brocade switch the server was plugged into, but because I like conversation with people, I asked the guy anyway.  Well, he didn't know, so I guess it was up to me to figure it out.  Telnet into the switch, and look at the ARP table.  See below.

telnet@Core#     sh arp eth 1/1
No.   IP Address       MAC Address    Type     Age Port           Status
1    ef5e.66c3.e567 Dynamic  0    1/1           Valid
