[Asterisk-Dev] IAX behind NAT?

I am running two instances of NAT, both behind firewalls.
In one case, the private IP for the asterisk box is translated, 1-to-1,
to a public IP.
In the other case, the asterisk box shares and IP with other users.
Here's the rub: the "shared NAT" box seems to be able to send traffic to
the "1-to-1 NAT" box just fine, and voice goes nicely both ways. In
this case there is an entry in iax.conf that contains the visible IP of
the 1-to-1 box.
But the other way doesn't go so smoothly. I hope I can say this
intelligbly: if I try to have the 1-to-1 box answer an incoming PSTN
call and then use IAX to pass it off to the "shared NAT" box, I see the
IAX connection request going out, but at the other end it nothing is
Is this to be expected? If not, could someone point me towards a method
of debugging the problem?
I'm sure it must be due to the many machines (I'm at a conference, and
want to show off asterisk) who are all sharing the same IP.
I know they have a Linksys box at the head end of the network here. .
