Problem registering SIP phone from outside the network

We moved our Asterisk server version 1.4.31 from one network to another.  When my phones are on the new LAN, they register to the server just as I would expect.  When I try to connect from outside the network, the phones will not register.  I am using x-lite to test my connectivity.
The firewall in the new LAN is a Cisco 5505 and these are the settings are as follows.  I believe this to be a firewall issue because everything was working perfectly in the old LAN.

SIP is normally port 5060 and up, I don't see that?
Did you have a firewall in the old setup?  If so, do you have a copy of that config?

we are using IAX2 traffic over the default port (4569).
The settings above are the same as my previous firewall.
Port 5060 in not configured in any of my other sites, only port 4569.

sorry, not familiar with IAX2
Aren't your NAT statements the wrong way round? ASA is normally source first, then destination

Insideif nAT lists actual first, then legal NAT

you can see when I create this static route in asdm how it shows from the command line.  If I change this then nothing works, including phone registration from inside the network.  When I change it back then I can register phone from inside but still nothing outside.

What is the voiceif network? Is this where the internal phones sit?

voiceif is a different phone system.  Those phone reside on the 10.1.35.x network.

My phones are registering from inside the network without issue.  It is from outside the network that is the problem.

This is a silly question, but what license do you have on the ASA 5505? I seem to recall you have to have the SEC-PLUS license to use 3 interfaces, and escape the license restrictions.

Hi Gareth.  We must have an open license on this FW because we have been using 4 of the 7 ports for years.  Way before my time, hahaha.

Garith, do you think it would help if I changed the public IP Address to something different?  The one I am using seems to be routing to 0.0.0.0

The route to 0.0.0.0 is the default route for the firewall, i.e. the internet.
Can I clarify - you have 2 different phone systems in your network?>
