k8s-node-controller creates pods that cannot run iptables

I am trying to set up a basic single tier architecture to access an apache container through a VPX (not CPX). I can install both the citrix-k8s-node-controller and the citrix-k8s-ingress-controller with mostly no issues. I see all the objects being created on both the nodes and VPX. Ultimately the nodes in the service group keep flipping up and down as the TCP monitor check fails. I do see that that the kube-cnc-router pods on every node fail to run the iptables command at the end, while everything before that seems fine.

[user@k8s-master temp]$ kubectl logs kube-cnc-router-k8s-node01
CNI Name is calico
ip link delete cncvxlanc21f9

ip link add cncvxlanc21f9 type vxlan id 179  dev enX1  dstport 8472
ip link set up dev cncvxlanc21f9
ip addr add dev cncvxlanc21f9

iptables v1.6.1: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
iptables -I INPUT 1 -p udp --dport 8472 -j ACCEPT

The iptables version info from the nodes.

[user@k8s-node01 ~]$ iptables --version
iptables v1.8.10 (nf_tables)

Is this a legacy iptables vs nf_tables issue? The nodes are CentOS 9 Stream using kubernetes and cri-o versions 1.29.2. Calico is installed.

Pings from the NS VPX to a worker node also fail.

root@ns# ping -S
PING ( from 56 data bytes
--- ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss

All the commands to test on the NS seem to return the correct info. Same for checking the worker nodes, except for finding the iptables rule.
