Basically I have the asterisk server hosted at an ISP which allows
phones to be connected anywhere in the USA. This gives me the ability to
call an extension from Chicago to New York for free (or anywhere in the
world for that matter). Having the server hosted does not restrict me to
bandwidth issues that I may encounter hosting it anywhere else. 

Like I said, I'm prepared to donate $$ to the monowall team for a tftp
NAT fix.

why do you not put the server behind the firewall, with the required
port forwarding? or onto a DMZ with relevant pinholes for communication?

almost all IP phones do this - it allows you to fix the numerous bugs
still all have. nothing like a 2 minute bootup before you can place
a simple call! ;-)
