Just as a test, try a configuration with a much greater range between 
portMin & portMax e.g. portMin = 20000, portMax =30000.

I think there's something amiss with port number allocations when 
min/max are so close. I previously tried a narrow range like yours (in 
order to try to generate specific, repeatable port numbers), but it 
didn't work as expected. Unfortunately I didn't have time to track down 
the problem, so left it to the bridge service to select port numbers 
from a wide range.
