I want to accept all packets sent to my centos7 VPS from my device regardless of options defined on public zone. (I want to remove ssh service from public zone and just be able to connect from my mac address!)

But when I add my mac address as a source to Trusted zone, if I remove ssh service from public I'll not be able to connect to vps via ssh until I add ssh service to public zone which is accessible for public. I tried rich rules for getting higher priority but got same results. If I add Ip address as source it works ok but my ip address is not static and what I want is enabling this option for my mac address.


MAC addresses are only relevant on a local subnet - your VPS can't see your remote devices MAC address. In short, you can't achieve what you're trying tobdo.
