I have setup a KVM host using a routed bridge (interface br0) where the virtual machines are connected. I can reach services inside the VMs on the bridge from the KVM host without problems. I can reach services on the bridged VMs from the internet (public zone) due to

firewall-cmd --permanent --direct --passthrough ipv4 -I FORWARD -m physdev --physdev-is-bridged -j ACCEPT

I have added OpenVPN server to the KVM host (using tun0) and want to reach services on the bridged VMs from an OpenVPN client. This works if firewallD is shutdown but not with firewallD.
