I think your issue is mainly due to port associated with snmp.

Splunk user does NOT normally have access to operate ports below 1024.
Check inputs.conf, whether the trap port is set to a value below 1024.

If so re-assign a free port in range of 80**
Modify input.conf in the apps local and assign trap_port = 80**

Please let us know whether this helped or not.
