Cisco ASA 5505 - Inbound TCP Connections Denied

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Greetings all...

A few days ago, I had a client call with the problem of people not being able to get to the internet, web pages not loading after a while, and random internet drops in general.  After pulling up the ASA 5505 logs, I see nothing but these:

"Inbound TCP connection denied from <outside IP>/80 to <client public ip>/4929 flags PSH ACK on interface outside"

You can substitute PSH ACK with FIN ACK, RST, and FIN PSH ACK.

Anyone know what's causing this?  These errors come from random IP's on the outside but all are from source port 80 or 443;  and they are nearly non-stop.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!!!
