Hi All,

I have a ASA 5505 Firewall Installed in our network. On our office network there is a SQL Server running that communicates with our website for live data.

I need only https communication to occur between the webserver and our internal server.

at present I have 2 rules applied as below/attached.

xx.xx.xx.40 is the leased line.

The problem with the present setting is that there are failed login attempts to SQL Server hence I need to secure it.

Thank you

The highlighted line allows SQL from the whole internet to your internal server which is always a bad idea (same for line 10). This line should be removed. And if the webserver only needs HTTPS, then also the line 8 can be removed.
