The fine manual reads :

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-bridging.html

Kind regards and good luck

Ps.
Note: It is my experience that the bridge has a "sidedness", that is -
if you put a bridge in front of a another machine to see what happens,
like :
LAN -> switch <-> Bridge <-> Machine to look at
Then it is not irrellevant what "side" of the bridge connects to to
the switch and what side connects to the machine. I dont know why this
is so, and havent bothered to find out / think about it, as its a
simple matter of swapping cables if the services on machine becomes
unreachable.
