Xbox One and Teredo (UDP port 3544)

I just thought I'd share my findings regarding a huge problem I had with obtaining an IP for Teredo on my Xbox One. I had forwarded the port for Teredo and even added a static outbound NAT rule for my Xbox but I just couldn't get it working. So here are my findings:
- Teredo is used to give IPV6 connectivity on an IPV4 network so allowing IPV6 traffic (under Advanced -> Networking) may be necessary.
- Teredo requires a static outbound NAT rule (NAT -> Outbound). Specifically on destination port 3544 but you can make the outbound rule to that applies to all ports.
- Your router's domain search list (e.g. pfsense.localhost) can interfere with Teredo, so it's best to give the Xbox a static DHCP lease and set the Domain Search List to NULL (DHCP Server -> Add/Edit DHCP Static Mappings).
I hope this helps someone. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
