Unable to send messages to federated contacts

We're deploying a Lync 2013 server and we're not able to send IM's to federated contacts. I just finished setting up the edge pool and I started getting these event logs when a contact attempts to send a message to an external contact.

Some requests were rejected as they exhausted the Max-Forwards limit.

In the past 15 minutes, the protocol stack rejected 101 requests that were looping and exhausted the Max-Forwards limit. The last one was this SIP message:

Cause: This usually indicates an incorrect server configuration or a bad routing rule.
Resolution:
None needed unless the number of reported errors is large (> 100). This usually indicates an incorrect server configuration or a bad routing rule. Check whether all server routing rules are properly configured.

Any idea how I can fix this bad route?

Please, answer these questions!

1- Have you deployed the public certificate on Edge server?
2- Have you enabled firewall required ports?
3- Did you add Lync Frontend FQDN and Active directory host name to the Host files in Edge server and vice versa in Front end for the edge with the internal NIC IP ?
You can try to ping Front end from Edge and Edge from Front end to see if it's connecting.
4- have you added the Certification authority certificate to the Edge server ?
