How does firewalld behave when I have overlapping sources

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I have multiple zones configured in firewalld. I configure source IP addresses in one of the zones, and network ranges in another zone.
  • I have a port open in firewalld, however when I try to connect to this port, firewalld is still refusing the connection.
