I couldn't connect Mysql server today. And after checking my firewall: Cisco ASA 5505, I found the following log:

"Deny IP due to Land Attack from 72.166.258.188 to 72.166.258.188"

And the ip is the outside ip of the Firewall.

Anyone can help with that?

Thanks.

%PIX|ASA-2-106017: Deny IP due to Land Attack from IP_address to
    IP_address

Explanation

The security appliance received a packet with the IP source address equal to the IP destination, and the destination port equal to the source port. This message indicates a spoofed packet that is designed to attack systems. This attack is referred to as a Land Attack.

Recommended Action: If this message persists, an attack might be in progress. The packet does not provide enough information to determine where the attack originates.

But the problem is, I cannot connect mysql with the Firewall's outside IP.

I got the following in logs:

No translation group found for tcp src inside:10.0.0.1/51700 dst outside:72.166.258.188/3306
Deny IP due to Land Attack from 72.166.258.188 to 72.166.258.188

Are you trying to connect to the sql server from behind the ASA on the 10 network using its public IP?

Exactly. Actually, I have another server with the same configuration. It can connect mysql through its public IP. But this one cannot.

Are you accessing it via its IP or its fully qualified domain name?

I have another server with the same configuration, it works. And I found there is some difference:

On this server: Firewall IP: 173.201.176.21 Public IP: 72.166.258.188

On the other server: FIrewall IP: 184.164.158.230 Public IP: 184.164.158.228

The working server has IPs in the same range.

I got it solved. I should use localhost instead of firewall's public IP to connect mysql. But I don't know why the other server works.
