    i was able to get pfsense to work by installing the arpwatch package

    you mean without arpwatch, pfsense will not work? or it adds some monitoring functions to your network?

    so when i first plugged it in i never could get the app to discover it.  i then setup outside of pfsense on my AT&T router/modem.  this worked just fine.  i then set back to factory.  the plugged back into the pfsense network. was not getting anything still looking and seeing how firewalla use arp for it's stuff i looked for packages inside pfsense that dealt with arp.  the one i found was arpwatch and installed it.  from there it just started working i'm not sure why or what it does i know with arpwatch i can see all the items in the network sending arp request's but why it made firewalla work no clue.

    Very likely an issue with pfsense.  When Firewalla is first installed, it doesn't do any arp trick.  The only thing it does it to broadcast everywhere (Bluetooth, LAN ) to make sure the app is next to it ... in this case, the broadcasts may be intercept by pfsense and never forwarded.
