Greetings first thing that comes to mind is to make sure you have a 
config file located in /etc/asterisk/ the config file should be gps.conf 
now its been a long time but i think you also have to edit system.conf 
as well.. Like i said i am not the best to ask about this but here is 
two documentation link you should have a look at..


Make sure you forward port 14580 to your node through your routers or 
firewalls.. Also if your using UFW firewall on your installation make 
sure you add 14580 to its list to allow traffic..

Pinging out one direction is one thing but if the aprs server can't 
communicate back to the server it will fail..
