How to add multiple source addresses as a rich rule via firewalld?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I would like to add more than one source address as a rich rule, however only the last address specified is taken into consideration.
  • For example, below only Y.Y.Y.Y/Y and port BB is accepted
# firewall-cmd --add-rich-rule='rule family=ipv4 source address=X.X.X.X/X  address=Y.Y.Y.Y/Y port port=AA port=BB protocol=tcp log prefix="test" level="notice" accept' 

# cat /etc/firewalld/zones/drop.xml 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<zone target="DROP">
  <description>Unsolicited incoming network packets are dropped. Incoming packets that are related to outgoing network connections are accepted. Outgoing network connections are allowed.</description>
  <rule family="ipv4">
    <source address="Y.Y.Y.Y/Y"/>
    <port port="BB" protocol="tcp"/>
    <log prefix="test" level="notice"/>
