Hi,
 I'm trying to forward my port 5060 to my asterisk box and have set both TCP and UDP to forward to my asterisk internal IP. But when I try to check if it open I get a Error: I could not see your service on 24.123.112.138 on port (5060)
Reason: Connection refused

How are you checking? "Connection refused" sounds like you are testing using TCP and being rejected - asterisk only listens on UDP 5060.

Why not set up a SIP extension and use a SIP softphone to see if registration is successful.

I thought there might be some NAT issue with SIP

There will be a NAT issue, especially if your kit doing the port forwarding doesn't handle SIP, but this will be with the media ports if you try a set up a call.
If all you're doing is testing UDP 5060 from the outside in, that's all the softphone will use when logging in.
