OEAP and 5508 Controller

I have a couple of demo 600 OEAPS and am having trouble getting them to connect to the controller.  I've given the controller a public IP and opened the firewall with the UDP ports.  I've added teh NAT address to the controllers managment interface.  When I try and connect with 600 accross the web I get the following error in the 600's event log.

*Jan 01 08:01:05.587: Could not discover any MWAR.

*Jan 01 08:01:05.618: Starting Discovery.

*Jan 01 08:01:05.619: CAPWAP State: Discovery.

*Jan 01 08:01:05.645: capwapWtpStatemachine() returned 4

Not sure where to look, this seems so simple.  Any ideas???

The issue here is that your WLC is running version

Discovery response from MWAR 'HOUWLC01'running version is rejected.

The OEAP600 support started in version, so you will need to upgrade your WLC software to a later release to get these APs to join.
