Trixbox with PIX VPN. Remote phone can call but not receive calls

I've searched a great deal but haven't yes been able to find an answer that solves my problem.
In the main office I have a PIX 515e with static IP. In the remote office I have a PIX 501. I'm using cisco 7940/7960 phones.

I edited the sip_nat.conf file by adding the following:

localnet= # VPN1 to
localnet= # VPN2 to

I also disabled the sip fixup protocols on both PIXs:

no fixup protocol sip 5060
no fixup protocol sip udp 5060

The remote phone can call any extension of a phone in the main office and the call works perfectly. I notice that trixbox doesn't show the remote phone as connected though and also phones in the main office cannot dial the remote extension. I'm thinking its a firewall configuration but am not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

and you have the UDP ports open - it sounds like a firewall issue at the main office

Double check all of your port configurations, and get a port checker utility to double check the ports ( or ping , telnet to them )

I guess my confusion comes in because Our phones to the outside work just fine, as well as the other remote phone dialing in over vpn. I didn't think that the firewall settings would affect the VPN. Here is the config file on the main office 515e:

I figured it out. My configuration was just fine, the remote phone was configured to register with proxy. i just added:

proxy_register: 1

to my SIPDefault.cnf file and rebooted the phone. Everything works fine.
