We have purchased some SSG140s along with the 16 port copper module. The intent is to create a bridged interface, and place interfaces from the module into that bridge group.
However, there appears to be an issue in that we can only assign the built in ports into a bridge group. Ports eth4/0 thru 15 are not valid.
myfw-> set interface bgroup0/0 port ?
ethernet0/3 ethernet0/3 interface
ethernet0/4 ethernet0/4 interface
ethernet0/5 ethernet0/5 interface
ethernet0/6 ethernet0/6 interface
ethernet0/7 ethernet0/7 interface
ethernet0/9 ethernet0/9 interface
I've attempted this with both screenos 6.0x and 6.1 witrhy the same result.

Bridge groups are supported only on uPIMs in the SSG. Check if there are such informations on the backside of the device.
I thought that the 4 slots were PIM/uPIM compatible but perhaps there are not ....
Also you must run ScreenOS 6.0 or greater.

I've found a solution to this -
Using the CLI you can use 'bgroup 4 0'. After that, you'll have the bgroup4/0 interface available. From there you can add interfaces on the uPIM as required.
There is no way to combine ports from different uPIMs, or combine them with the internal ports.
