I can no longer join valheim server, How to connect again?

I am new to server stuff and not to knowlegable about firewalls and networking.
I have a valheim server that I have been playing but I could not connect via incompatable version error since the new update. So I tried to find out how to check the mod or game version of the game, not much luck there. I had been using the vhserver command to update the game and mods before, but it no longer worked. I then tried to use steamcmd and found out that I did not set it up. So I went through the install proccess via https://www.linode.com/docs/guides/install-steamcmd-for-a-steam-game-server/ . After I got it installed and ran the app_update command, I could no longer conncet to my server via local steam game. I checked that my ip address was correct, so my best guess is that the v4 and v6 configs that I added when installing and configured steamcmd messed with the firewall configs.
When I ran "sudo iptables -L" I got a descent sized list, but I have no clue what I am looking for. Here is the output http://sprunge.us/BY52Vm and http://sprunge.us/XbwPIa for ip6tables.
(edit) I can still access the server via ssh terminal login just not joining with the game.
I also have the output https://termbin.com/mt9c
There is also the port diagnosis command "ss -tuplwn | grep start_server_be" that it lists but I get no output from it.

Thank you for the help.

It sounds like you believe this issue may be caused by one of the firewall rules you have configured. One troubleshooting step you can try is to flush your firewall rules. You'll want to make sure you save them first before you begin troubleshooting this way. The following Community Questions post will give you some information on how to do this.

How do I temporarily (or permanently) flush / wipe my iptables?
