Filtering Transparent Bridge mode on VMWARE ESXi 5.5

I google it and following many guides. I still cannot make it to work.
WAN - phy.interface DHCP (vSwitch0) Accepted Promiscuous Mode
LAN - phy.inferface NONE (vSwitch1) Accepted Promiscuous Mode
my goal is bridge WAN and LAN but filtering (like Untangle's Bridge Mode)
WAN and LAN -> Bridge
OPT1 -> Bridge0 ( no idea how to use it)
net.link.bridge.pfil_bridge = 1
firewall WAN (all *) for now
firewall LAN (all *) for now
The computer on vSwitch1. no DHCP, no Internet even set a static IP. basically, nothing.
I want the computer on vSwitch1 can communicate with Domain controller, DHCP, DNS and incoming TCP/80 port on the WAN interface
Enterprise Network installed with DC, DHCP, DNS servers etc –--> pfSense Bridge (filtering TCP80) -> Virtual Web Server (this server have to communicate with DC, DHCP and DNS)
I am thinking that work around.
WAN phy.interface DHCP
LAN phy.interface set up as NAT and port forward all the necessary ports
Enterprise Network installed with DC, DHCP, DNS servers etc ----> pfSense NAT (filtering and port forwarding) -> Virtual Web Server (this server have to communicate with DC, DHCP and DNS)
