Thanks for clarifying that.  I can certainly live with port 47760 now that I know that it's the "official" port.  It probably would be a good idea to add to the documentation that BroControl uses this port, though I might have missed it.

Going forward, we hope to contribute some of our work with external sensors.

Thanks again for your help.

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.
