Configure as below using the GUI.

Enable IPv6 in pfSense:

  • Tick the "Allow IPv6" option
  • Click "Save" at the bottom

Firstly your WAN interface:

  • Select "Interfaces"
  • Select your "WAN" interface
  • In the "General Configuration" section, set "IPv6 Configuration Type" as "DHCP6"
  • In the "DHCP6 Client Configuration" section, set the following...
  • Options -> Advanced Configuration: untick
