Watching my logs on a ASA running 7.2(4) and I see dozens (per minute) of icmp or tcp connections denied messages coming from the same address. Sniffer traces don't indicate any packets from that source are making into the "inside" network. How do I get it to stop? Do I report the address to my ISP and have them block it? Do I contact their ISP or just filter on that port at my gateway router?
You are correct. You need to get in touch with your ISP and have them block it right there so, these packets done even arrive on your side of the circuit.
