The 3 different methods I thought can be used are

- update the
However the only thing worked was updating the
/etc/sysconfig/iptables file. Providing the screenshots below with the different approaches except the file update as it was successful
So my question
- Is my initial, understanding about 3 approaches wrong?
iptables-savepersist the change post restart?
- Any other input is highly appreciated

Using iptables CLI and Append command

iptables-save and restart but still the
/etc/sysconfig/iptables did not change. Also i tried to do curl from jump host and it was working (which it was not supposed to)

iptables-save seem to have did the trick but as soon as i restarted, things reverted
Using iptables CLI and not using “iptables-save” command and instead trying to restart iptables
Note: Here did not do
iptables-save tried restart and things did not work
