[Bro] No Work Dir Found

I managed to fix the no work dir found problem (silly permissions issues and ssh-keys). I run broctl check and everything says ok. I then try to start and everything starts ok, but then all of the workers immediately fail due to an error at line 67 of /usr/local/bro/share/bro/drop.bro 

internal error: NB-DNS error in DNS_Mgr::WaitForReplies (recvfrom(): Connection refused)

It doesn't make sense to me because it seems like it's saying it has DNS issues, but DNS works in every other aspect (ping, browser).

did you run 'install' in broctl?
