I'm running pfsense in a vm on esxi, so I'd like to chime in here, but it seems you all have it covered. One thing I would add though, is if you are running pfsense as a vm on top of an OS, disable all protocols on the adapter you using for the WAN connection - except vmware bridge. You don't want any tcp/ip packets going to the host OS from the WAN connection, only to the vm. The VMware protocol will send anything coming in to the VM.
