In your port-forward rule, your Destination should be WAN address.
How are you testing? From WAN side or LAN side? What type of network is your WAN, public IP or private IP?
It should work even with * as the Dest, I believe. Have you gone through this yet?
Let me ask this: I have Cox Business internet with a Static public IP, is there anything I need to setup on the cox router to allow port forwarding on my pfsense firewall. Port forwarding worked fine on the router by its self

Read the port forwarding troubleshoot wiki page first without going any further, especially the point 8:
8\. The pfSense router is not the border router. If there is something else between pfSense and the ISP, the port forwards and associated rules must be replicated there.
Wow right there in black and white. Ok how can I make pfsense the only thing between the ISP and my network, since Cox's connection is coaxial
You need a cablemodem in bridge mode and then pfSense after that. If your modem is also acting as a firewall router then you're going to have problems.
