This is my first Blog post so bear/beer with me!
I am running asterisk 1.4.11 or something similar.
VFX is different to most connections you will have configued with Asterisk as they require 3 things:
Most providers only require 2.
ok now down to business
register => 995035xx:<THIS IS THE PASS>:<THIS IS THE AUTHID>@as.wxcnz.net/995035xx
fromuser=995035xx ; this is your VFX Number
You MUST have 'fromuser=' in there or else the system will not let you make calls. Also this must be your number don't bother trying to spoof your callerid. It doesn't work!
Also you should have canreinvite=no set or else you will be sending an extra invite the WxC doesn't like... it may still work, but WxC won't be happy (thanks Josh)
The other trap that i found was that the host as.wxcnz.net is not a valid DNS entry. This may have been corrected, however if it hasn't you will need to create an entry like this:
in /etc/hosts add the follwing line:
As per normal you can add all the usual codec deny and allow stuff i use ulaw and works fine, i have also used G729 with VFX and found to be very good, but im fussy so im sticking to ulaw.
I think that pretty much sums it up... feel free to ask me any questions if you get stuck!

Argh the old as.wxcnz.net DNS issue - this is not a resolvable address from Public IP's, so this entry is needed for devices that do not support OBP.
