From Netflow Analyazer I can see a connection from an external IP to my ASA's outside interface that's been going for 2 hours and downloaded 3GB of data so far, how can I kill this conenction? It's a http connection.

you can shun the connection or perform a "clear

xlate" on that connection

clear local-host is good for this also.

Thanks, will this drop that single external IP that's comming inbound? I don't want to drop all connections.

Why don't you just put up an ACL blocking that IP on the outside interface?
