[AG-TECH] BridgeServer not bridging?

Not sure if this is your issue - but I've just run into something very 
similar - it was caused by our bridgeserver certificate not being 
authorized to connect to the venueserver (two different machines - two 
different certificates).

I added the bridgeserver DN to the venueserver administrators list and 
it worked after that.

Giving administrator access is a bit extreme, obviously - and I'd like 
to narrow the scope of authorization; however, I wasn't sure which 
'Actions' the bridgeserver was required to be authorized for.  Any 
advice from other admins would be great!
