As Stefan Reuter previously stated, there's no problem running your AGI
application remotely. It's extremely fast (hence the name FastAGI) and
it also frees the Asterisk box from any load your application could
produce (think of calculation or database query processing)

However, even though AGI is a lot like CGI for Asterisk, it doesn't mean
you can use web applications as AGI applications. Ok, you could "tell"
Asterisk what to do. But how would you get responses back from

Or maybe you've got a genius idea I couldn't think of. In that case, let
us know!
