Oh, are you running this through BroControl?  BroControl configures the communication framework for you.  All you need to do is add another value to the Communication::nodes variable with the events to listen to.

redef Communication::nodes += {
       ["barnyard2"] = [$host=, $class="Barnyard2", $events=/Barnyard2::.*/],

You *should* now be able to connect to the process, but you'll have to connect on port 47760/tcp.  Is there a particular reason that you want to change that?  You can't really do that in any BroControl deployment at the moment, and the communication code only can listen on a single port per Bro process.

This is a somewhat undefined area of operation because there hasn't been a lot of work to integrated external applications on clusters like this yet.
