Okay, I didn't actually mean "does anyone connect *inbound* to your Asterisk 
server" - I was more asking about the connectivity between the Asterisk box 
and (anything on) the Internet (eg: Callcentric), and whether there is NAT

Does your Asterisk box have an RFC1918 address (ie: 
or, or does it have a public IP address on its own interface?

If the address on your Asterisk server falls in the RFC1918 range, then you 
have NAT occurring on your router, and this is known to cause one-way (or 
sometimes no-way) audio from time to time.

Yes, or else on any router between the Asterisk machine and the other end of 
the affected calls (ie: Callcentric).  It's very probably simplest to do it on 
the Asterisk server, though.
