fix an edge in one direction

I've done some searching, and haven't found the answer to what should be a simple question:

 

lets say I have a beam I'm modeling.  I have a symmetric situation, so I cut the beam in half and put a roller/slider fixture at the cut end.

 

The other end I want to be supported against vertical deflection, but not against deflection along the axis.  I'm going to put a distributed load on the beam.

 

How in the heck do I support that edge?  Every time I try to put a constraint on, Simulate wants to fix it completely
