NetApps F810 and FC, no dice

I am using NetApps F810 filer. Can I attach this to a server through Fibre Channel or does the communication to my server have to be Ethernet?

The F810 cannot be connected to a server through Fibre Channel. It is a NAS device that only supports connection through for remote file serving. The connection is typically Ethernet of some version.
