Yeah, the default port broping tries to connect to looks like 47758, not sure if that needs to change right now, but you can try either giving the "-p 47757" switch to broping to explicitly tell it which port to use, or redef the variable in Bro that sets the default listen port (e.g. "redef Communication::listen_port=47758/tcp")
