no internal Audio on voip call behind ASA

I have configured a Cisco 7942 IP Phone behind a ASA5505. the phone has registered with the call managers and I can make and recieve calls from the outside just fine. However if I call internally phone to phone I get no audio in either direction. I have enabled the "same-security-traffic permit intra-interface" command to allow for hairpinning as well. Also added inspect statements for SIP and SKINNY. see config.....

If the phones can establish a call, but not transfer audio, its usually an Access-list issue.   But I'm a little confused as to the layout of the network.     I only see the one vlan interface on the ASA for inside, but you have more subnets defined 10.30. and 10.1 .     Is there a 2nd gateway out of the 10.30 subnet?  
dtadminAuthor Commented:
no. the ASA only has one subnet behind it. The other you see in the ACL was me playing around trying to get it to work.
dtadminAuthor Commented:
actually the 10.30 subnet is the asa at the remote site.
the 10.1 subnet is my corporate subnet where the call managers reside.

Are these phones registering via SIP outside the network or are they using a call manager inside the network?  

So the phones are registering via SIP and can establish a call, but no audio back and forth correct?  If the call is established, then the PBX has done its work, and now the traffic is from phone to phone directly.    

Question:   if you make a call outside the network, doe sit work correctly?  

Question:  if you take the 2nd phone outside the network, does it work correctly?

dtadminAuthor Commented:
they are registering to a call manager inside the network.

Yes. When I make a call from the ip phone behind the ASA to my cell phone the call completes with audio.
If they are registering to a call manager on the same subnet, then when the call is established, the CCM is done.  After that, its phone to phone.     Are the phones on same subnet?   can the phones ping each other?   What codec are you using?  Is it the same on both phones?
dtadminAuthor Commented:
the phones are on separate subnets. The phone behind the asa is on the subnet; the phone at my corporate office is on a subnet. I am using G.711 codec all the way through.
OK, where is the network in relation to the 10.30.254 network, because I see no routing on the ASA....     Is there another gateway?   How are the packets routed?   What device is in between the 2 networks?    

Has this ever worked before or is this a new setup?
dtadminAuthor Commented:
new setup....
the 10.30.254 network is behind an asa5505 remote office which is connected to our corporate asa5520 via dynamic VPN tunnel. the 10.2.0 network is located at my corporate office.
dtadminAuthor Commented:
i added the 10.2 network to my ipsec and nonat ACL's on the 5505; maybe I need to add the 10.2 subnet to the nonat ACL on my corporate asa????
On the ASA tunnels, both sides must be no-nat'ed for traffic to flow correctly.    
dtadminAuthor Commented:
roger. I'll modify the ACL's on the corporate side and update this thread.
Any Luck?
