Mobility path down between 9800-40 and 9800CL

Level 1

I have a problem getting the data path up between C9800-40 (foreign) 9800CL (anchor). the foreign is behind my firewall, the anchor behind a 3rd party firewall.

both are on ver: Cisco IOS XE Software, Version 17.06.04

captures show connectivity on my firewall inside int:

1: 09:06:50.217624 172.18.60.4.16667 > 10.40.251.10.16667: udp 130
2: 09:06:50.217670 172.18.60.4.16666 > 10.40.251.10.16666: udp 115
3: 09:06:50.218433 10.40.251.10.16667 > 172.18.60.4.16667: udp 121

5: 09:06:50.218723 10.40.251.10.16666 > 172.18.60.4.16666: udp 110

 

capture from my firewall dmz interface:

ping from foreign to anchor

WLC001#ping 172.18.60.4
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 172.18.60.4, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!!

the anchor is behind a NAT. the foreign targets 172.18.60.4

All documentation seems to point to catalyst to AireOS. 

Where do i look for data path issues.

Thanks

Its is the 3rd party firewall interface. 

ive just found this document: Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controller Software Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS XE Amsterdam 17.3.x - NAT Support on Mobility Groups [Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers] - Cisco

We may have the mobility group IP info incorrect. I need to check it

And the 3rd party firewall is blocking the mobility traffic:
172.18.60.3 > 10.40.251.10 icmp: 172.18.60.4 udp port 16667 unreachable
That's the firewall telling you it's dropped those packets which were destined for 172.18.60.4.
