Question about IDS events
From: Koolk3 <koolk3 () gmail com>

I am seeing external IP addresses in few events on my internal IDS.
These are mostly port/network scan type events. I am wondering what
the reason is. Instead of the firewall address why am I seeing the
originating IP? Is this due to the nature of ICMP packets or does this
result from scans like Nmap?

Thanks for your responses.

Sample events:

TCP_Port_Scan   Medium  80.67.72.208    10.113.128.50
TCP_Port_Scan   Medium  80.67.72.208    10.113.128.50
TCP_Port_Scan   Medium  80.67.72.208    10.113.128.50
TCP_Port_Scan   Medium  80.67.72.208    10.119.0.50
