Application security task wrongly failed

Completed task as per task guidelines
I got this task of creating iptables rules for accepting all the incoming connections to the Nginx port 8081 and Blocking all the incoming connections to the Apache port 8099. I have added the following rules
made sure the rules are permanent by- /sbin/service iptables save

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8093 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8083 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j REJECT

/sbin/service iptables save

vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables
vi /etcsysconfig/

cheked both iptables both had my changes saved before i clicked finish button

@player001 @KodeKloud can you pls check

Hello, Sasi
Have you checked from the other server? Is it responding or not?

Task didnt require to restart the iptables service or curl the ports, it is not mentioned in the task.
Task asked to accept all the incoming connections to Nginx port 8081 and block and incoming connection to apache port 8099. i have made these 2 rules and did a permanent save by /sbin/service iptables save and able to verify the rules in cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables and cat /etc/sysconfig/

if incase if the verification of the task is checking for things which are not mentioned in the task description it should be given as Success to us. Having tasks not explicity stating the full tasks needed to pass the task and then failing the work on items not listed in the task demotivates the candidates and soon they will loose interest in the site. pls fix this issue and pls dont repeat such in future.
