IP Passthrough/pfsense...BGW210, firewall....

I've successfully integrated my pfsense box with uverse at my home, using IP Passthrough. Hurray!

Should I go ahead and turn off all of the firewall features/functions/protections/etc. on my BGW210 so that my pfsense box is doing all of that? Or does IP Passthrough mode actually already do that?

I've seen conflicting information on that answer so far, where I've seen one ATT Tech post in the ATT forums that IP Passthrough mode effectively "disables" all firewall features/functions/protections...and another tech say that if you put your gateway in IP Passthrough mode, you need to go ahead and disable all of the firewall features/functions/protections so that you're third-party router/firewall operates normally.

Any ideas?
