Can't Get to a Website

Cisco ASA.  The website we want to get to (www.fixme.com) resolves to 77.77.77.116
The ASA has an IP of 88.88.88.141
An internal PC has the IP of 192.168.12.57

I find these lines in the ASA:

access-list capin extended permit ip host 192.168.12.57 host 77.77.77.116
access-list capin extended permit ip host 77.77.77.116 host 192.168.12.57
access-list capout extended permit ip host 88.88.88.141 host 77.77.77.116
access-list capout extended permit ip host 77.77.77.116 host 88.88.88.141

Even if I remove all these lines, a ping of www.fixme.com resolves properly (77.77.77.116) but the pings are not answered.

Any ideas?

Funny, that's not the ip address I get for www.fixme.com, and you're correct, you can't get a ping response from 77.77.77.116:

ping 77.77.77.116

Pinging 77.77.77.116 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 77.77.64.106: Destination host unreachable.
Reply from 77.77.64.106: Destination host unreachable.

ping www.fixme.com

Pinging fixme.com [209.81.96.132] with 32 bytes of data:

Was Fixme.com an example, or is your DNS screwed?

I should have clarified!  fixme.com is an example.
The website resolves properly and answers pings outside the firewall (i.e. from public hotspots, home, library, etc.) so it has to be something with my ASA...

Sorry, 77.77.77.116 isn't reachable from my connection....  See my original post.

Is 77.77.77.116 also an example?

Yes, the IPs and all are examples.  I try to avoid posting real IPs as malware and spam harvesters love to find them and then do bad things to them!

OK, apologies.  Thought we may have a simple problem of incorrect DNS etc.  That's not the case.  As I don't do ASA, I'll stand down, and apologise for jumping in.

I am guessing that the access-list on the external interface is capout. Add the following entry:

access-list capout ext permit ip host 77.77.77.116 host <external_ip_of_PC>

JRoyse, I tried your suggestion and still no go.

Mystique, the external IP is 77.77.77.116, so I think you may have meant for the same exact setup as JRoyse.

Here's what's weird...there is no need for those 4 lines in the ASA config.  This domain should be resolved and loaded the same as any other.  Yet it won't load inside the building. Once you get on a network outside the building, it comes right up.  
Is there any kind of testing I can do from the ASA?  Even a ping of the IP from within the ASA fails....

Try the packet-tracer from the ASA:
packet-tracer in <input_interface> tcp <source_ip> 4444 <website_ip> 80

Do paste the output of this command. Also you could try applying captures on the input interface and the output interface to check if the ASA is infact sending the request out of the ASA. If so, is the website's response coming back.
Here is how you can apply captures:

Put in the private Ip of the source in the packet tracer command

Mystique, it all looks good (I think).  Before I paste in the output, see if this causes you to think of something else:

If I run a traceroute from off the network, I get all the way there.  The second to last hop is liquidweb, the very last hop is host.ez2ba.com.  If I run the traceroute internally, I get to liquidweb, then it just starts timing out, it never does that final hop to host.ez2ba.com.
Maybe the ASA views this as some sort of redirect and doesn't like it?  Maybe the webhost at host.ez2ba.com for some reason is denying my IP?

Anyway, here's the output:  (I changed one or 2 IPs to protect things):

Its all looking good here. I am not sure about the traceroute. What about the captures? Did you get to try that?

The capture was able to show me that the webhoster was blocking my public NAT address.  Once I inquired as to why, and got them to unblock it, life is good.
