A negated test is affirming a service is _not_ accessible.
Removing the test is not caring if the service is answering.
These are two different business needs.
Even if one confirms by some other means that a firewall product is
running, there is only one way to confirm that product is doing its job.
One must attempt to gain entry and see that access is denied.
Do things because you should, not just because you can.
