Sometimes the latest isn't always the greatest.

The reason i ask is, i could just go to an itsp help guide and follow their asterisk guides, rather than trying to enter it via the web gui.
It is recommended to use the FreePBX GUI but as it's a new setup why not just give it a try. You could always remove the FreePBX side of things completely from your PI and use Asterisk if you prefer.
yum remove freepbx
Or on the PI
sudo apt-get --purge remove freepbx

I think one of my main problems may be that i use sipgate for incoming calls and localphone for outgoing.
I think my problem is with my outbound/inbound routes.
back in a while, i need to make the gravy for the roast.
The first thing you should concentrate on is getting a softfone/IP Phone to register against your PBX.
Click on Applications > Extensions and make sure "Generic SIP Device" is selected in the drop down box and then click on submit...
In the "User Extension" field enter "200" (this is the extension number we are going to setup) then under "Display Name" enter "Extension 200", you can leave everything else at it's default settings. On your Softphone or IP Phone all you need to do is enter the following:
Proxy: IP address of your RasPBX
Password: This is located in the "secret" field of the extension you just setup.
Providing your PI and Softphone/IP Phone are on the same network, it should successfully register. If not, check that your firewall isn't blocking your softphone from registering.
Still not registering? Go to Settings > Asterisk SIP Settings on your RasPBX and set the following:
External IP: Enter your ISP IP address here. Google what's my IP to find it!
Local Networks: Just click on Auto Configure
Now save the changes.
Post back and let me know if you can get your Softphone or IP Phone to register.
