[Bro] required ports open for cluster?

Just to compound the issue, no matter what host in the cluster I set the
logger destination to, I get zero logs. I am running 2.5beta1. I've
disabled iptables all around to see if that was causing a problem, but it
does not seem to be the case, as I have a pcap showing what appears to be
bro dns logs attempting to go across the wire to the logger. They just
aren't being written....
