Off of the top of my head - bridge port horizon is the setting you need. You either have to have the ports on the bridge have the same horizon number, or all different (I am not sure which one - it is a while since I read that part of the manual). Please correct me if I am wrong.

But this will be for unauthenticated users. If you want only authenticated users to use it, let me know.
