Never had the need to try but it should work, you just need to advertise
your external public ip address in kamailio:

Search the mailing archive for "kamailio behind nat" or EC2 related

You'll also need an rtpproxy/engine that rewrites the advertised ip in
the SDP body.

As for configuring the router, forward udp/tcp port 5060 and the udp
ports used by the rtpprxy/engine to the internal server. That should be
rather obvious in OpenWRT, and AFAIK there is no SIP ALG you might need
to disable.
