Microsoft Lync 2010 Federation not working

Hi all,

I am in the process of migrating from OCS 2007 R2 to Lync 2010. All has gone well so far and i have a new internal pool and a new Edge server.

I can get remote access from my laptop from externally now but federation does not seem to work at all. I have a new cert from Trustico and it passes all tests on I am not using Reverse Proxy yet as i dont need publishing at this stage.

I have the following DNS entries in place in public: ->

Each of the dns entries above have an individual public IP address and are NATted to an internal address in DMZ.

I have also changed settings in the Federated route to point to the Lync Edge server

Users are set up for federation and confirmed user has: Allow Federation+Public+Outside Access

any ideas what i can try next please? weird that outside access works but not federation?
