solved this issue. PFsense service had to be restarted before the port change would take effect.

I think this qualifies as an answer, and since it's the right answer, you should accept it for yourself. I have converted it to an answer for you already so I did the easy part. 🙂

(If done all the time accepting your own answers is not ideal, but occasionally accepting your own answer when it's The Right Thing is completely fine!)

Post an example of your inputs.conf please.
And also a netstat to see whether splunk is actually listening on this port.
