I'm looking to run one physical host for now and add a second with several 
workers later. However load balancing has not worked yet, the module and 
driver are loaded and pfcount shows traffic but Bro reports everything triple, 
no load balancing.

Is there any configuration apart from configuring the manager, proxy and 
workers in node.cfg done in Bro to get this working? 

As I understood there should not be, as long as you link to the pf_ring 
enabled libpcap it should work when pf_ring is active.
