NAT Filtering

I currently use a D-Link router and noticed under the Firewall settings that I have two options

UDP Endpoint
TCP Endpoint

I assume the three selections for each of those (Endpoint independent, Endpoint restricted and Port and Address restricted) have to do with how restrictive everything is but can someone tell me what is the best setting? I play online games and browse the internet a lot. If I set it to Independent am I at significantly more risk of having a problem?

Thanks

    I have a dlink DGL-4100. I have TCP set for restricted by IP address and port. I have UDP set for restricted by IP address only. I also have UPnP (universal plug n play) enabled.

    If you play CoD you should see an open NAT setting and all your games will work fine.
