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.
