Can't Access Internet from Linux Server

I have a linux box that i can't seem to get onto the internet.  I can access anything internal to the network but as soon as i try and go external it instantly times out.

I can do an nslookup on google.com and it resolves the IPs just fine.  When i try and ping google.com i get From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable. is my gateway (ASA 5505) and all other computers on the network are working fine.

Seems like its trying to go out to the gateway and getting blocked somewhere.

Give the Linux box an IP address which you know can get to the internet, then try.

Just out of interest, can you check the IP on the Linux box?

If you can ping your own interface and you can ping your gateway, I would start with the ASA.  And I would start with that anyway as it will identify whether or not your packets are even making it that far.
