How to enable node level firewall rules that do not apply to guests?

May 18, 2019
I need to allow 22 and 8006 for a node, since it is outside my local LAN. How do I allow these ports for the node but not for guests? Is the only choice to specifically add a security group with 2 drop rules for each guest?
