Wow, Thanks to everyone for the information; I used the settings Ernst gave me and it works flawlessly.  

I look forward to learning more about this product and hopefully contributing useful information to the mail list.

The only way I got mine to work was to offer DHCP to the Xbox through pfSense and turn on upnp for that device only.

I have had good luck turning on upnp and getting the message to go away.

Looking to switch from Monowall to Pfsense for gaming reasons; I have one Xbox 360 and have had no luck getting the strict NAT message to leave when using Monowall. 
I have noticed that some have been successful in getting Pfsense to work without having a strict NAT message. 
Following the information in the forum hasn’t really gotten me very far. 
Does it work, if so can you point me in the right direction?  
If I’ve missed something on the Mailing list let me know where I can find that info. 
Any help is appreciated.

step 1) assign a static IP to your xbox how ever you choose

step 2) under NAT/Port Forward: forward UDP/3074 to your xbox IP

step 3) under NAT/Outbound: select Manual outbound NAT rule generation

step 3a) pfSense will have created 3 auto generated rules for you - leave these alone

step 3b) create a new rule for WAN interface, any UDP packet sourced from your xbox IP and select "static-port" option

step 3c) move this new rule to the top of the rules (it must match first else one of the auto generated rules will match).
