OfficeExtend AP not join the controller 5508

I try to configure an AP1131 as OfficeExtend but unfortunately I receive the following message from the debug command on the WLC5508:

the Ap1131 is set and WLC5508 is behind an ASA.

ports 12222, 12223, 5246 and 5247 are allowed.
that may be causing the problem?

in advance THX.

Augustin.

Re: OfficeExtend AP not join the controller 5508

Augustine,

     This is a common message.  All AP send discovery in both LWAPP and CAPWAP, incase it needs to connect to a controller running code < 5.2.  In your output, it does show the WLC sent the Discovey Response.  Do you have the NAT IP configured in the management interface?

OfficeExtend AP not join the controller 5508

Hi,

I have this same problem. Most solutions I've read online point to using multiple controllers, "guest anchor" design.

I am limited to a single 5508 controller with 7.0.116.0 code behind our firewall and need to setup OfficeExtend. I have our ASA setup with ports 5246/47 and assigned that NAT address to my management interface on the controller.

Unfortunately, my officeExtend AP never sees the controller.

I need a little help with this as well...

Mike,

Can you hit the WLC nat address from the outside ?
