After a yum update, I can no longer open a port...

We recently performed a yum update on the RHEL7 box, and much to our dismay, the ability to open the port now fails.

There are two scripts we have to run in order to open the port:
This one runs:
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 1234 -j ACCEPT

This one fails:
sudo iptables -A IN_public_allow -p tcp -m tcp --dport 1234 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT

Gives the following error:
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name.

This always worked for years, now that latest update won't allow this to run

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

iptables --list -n --line-numbers


cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables

Put "X.X" for the first two octets of public IPs/subnets.
