You can run a bridge like so:
Bridge.py --name NAME --location LOCATION
There are some other options, too, which you can see by running
'Bridge.py -h'. Of particular note is the
bridge port range, which you'll have to ensure is open for clients to be
able to use it.

A bridge must appear in the list of bridges for a unicast connection to
work. If you see 'No bridges available', you can
send your logfile to me so I can understand what is going wrong.
