This would be done with an ACL applied to the inside interface.  Assuming the ACL is called inside_access_in the command to block from the internet would be

access-list inside_access_in extended deny ip any
access-group inside_access_in in interface inside

Open in new window

If you have multiple subnets on your internal network and the ASA is your default gateway you might need a couple permit lines in front of the deny line.  Let's say is on subnet and you also have and networks they need to reach.

access-list inside_access_in extended permit ip
access-list inside_access_in extended permit ip
access-list inside_access_in extended deny ip any
access-group inside_access_in in interface inside

Open in new window

Via the ASDM

1. Config > Firewall > Add
2. Add the blocked IP
3. Add Access Rule
4. Insert a new rule on the inside (incoming)
5. Make sire your new rule is at the top
6. Save the changes
This would stop my internal IP address from getting to the outside of the firewall.

Warning: If you have no other filtering (outbound) you need to have an allow directly below that rule or all traffic flow outbound will stop. like so,
