Depending in your configuration it could be possible to use iptables
using the REDIRECT or DNAT feature to change the destination port from
54 to 5535. I don't know if this it's possible to do it in the same
machine you have the snort sensor, but surely you can try it.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
