Sorry, don't have the expertise to answer anything, but a question ...

Unless you're trying to test via an Ekiga (softphone?) calling into your
asterisk to test ... isn't it asterisk that registers with ekiga? Any
softphone you have, let alone all hardphones, should be registering with
your local asterisk. So internal calls would be ... internal. So in theory
it should never get out to Ekiga?

Don't you need a non-asterisk registered free sip tester account calling
ekiga or askterisk directly for your tests?

FWIW, when I tested this sort of thing, long ago (and never got anywhere
with it due to self-inertia), I used my cell to call a local number that
let me then call any voip address. I don't recall the number or network,
off-hand, but could dig it up if needed.
