I have reviewed the logs and found log 305005:

To do trobleshoot, I captured the packets on DMZ interface and found Spoofing Attack from Inside Network and whatever the connection is made on outside to DMZ for FTP access, the same connection is also making from Inside to DMZ Network and while it makes the connection then FW reset all connection.

Exp :

Outside Machine :

DMZ FTP Server :

Inside Network :

The connection between and is created and its working fine but when the same connection makes on Inside Interface which is already made on DMZ Interface then the FW reset the all connections and the geniune connections also gets denied.

Please Advice how to resolve this issue as I have checked through Sniffer on Inside host and found nothing any unwanted things.

The Conf file is attached.

When i try to upload any files on ftp server (#.#.4.41) then it works fine for 5 to 10 minutes after that connection gets lost. When i try to download anything again it works again for couple of minutes and connection gets reset.

It look like as an attack (Spoof) but dont able to understand how to find out the root cause. Please share your experience. Thanks!!


The other problem can cause problems is using a translated IP which actually resides on the Outside i.e. static (dmz,Inside) #.#.4.41 netmask dns

I have tried out similar mapping on my ASA and got 'portmap translation creation failed'.

Try to use something different IP (or not translate at all).

Hope it helps,
