I have a similar arrangement operating here which involves friends and
colleagues in the U.S., as well as a local VoIP provider that gives me access
to the PSTN.

To eliminate NAT issues, we are using IPv6: each of us has an IPv6 over IPv4
tunnel configured to provide access to the IPv6 Internet. NAT and all the
problems associated with it go away.

Another option, although I don't know how well real-time communication works
in this setting, would be to create a VPN using, for example, OpenVPN so that
the clients and server all appear to be on the same lan.

Alternatively, you could play with port forwarding and FreeSWITCH settings in
an attempt to work around the nat issues - good luck!

I can't answer any questions about MacOS or Windows softphones - there are no
MacOS or Windows machines in my life.
