Configure E1 port under bridging mode

We had a Cisco 7500 with a channelised E1 port - A End. We want to configure the E1 port under bridging mode with protocol support HDLC as well as PPP. What should be the configuration on Cisco's E1 port. Under the same scenario we have a bridge at the B end (E1 to Ethernet Converter.)
You can configure bridging, as you would do normally. Put both the interfaces in a same bridge group. As simple as that, but please understand the traffic that will go on WAN link. Instead of simple bridging consider using DLSW/RSRB or applying filters to limit the traffic on WAN. Let me know if you need further help in configuring these.
