Can you post your ASA config.

have you checked your ACL's? also, what port are you trying to access on the asterisk server?

I have asterisk setup (albeit they have public IP' and not private - so they have a static 1to1 Nat) behind an ASA5510 and it works ok.

it would be good if you could post your config

So you want to access the Asterisk server using its Public IP from your inside network.

Does the server respond to at least its internal IP ?

Is there multiple subnets behind your ASA/PIX ?Which subnets are the server and inside users present and what device is their default gateway?

You might need to do hairpinning for the server on inside ifc of ASA along with same-security command as follows , should ASA be the d/g of devices in question:

same-security-traffic intra interface

static (inside,inside) netmask
