I have the ASA firewall configured as http server, so that it will allow the computer located in Network to run ASDM and access ASA, and it works perfect.

ciscoasa# sh run | include http
http server enable
http inside

However when I test the inside interface (through which ASDM session is coming through), if it is listening on port 80 or port 443, it does not reply for TCP , but it does reply on Ping request

Ping TCP:
ciscoasa# ping tcp 80
Type escape sequence to abort.
No source specified. Pinging from identity interface.
Sending 5 TCP SYN requests to port 80
from, timeout is 2 seconds:
Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)

Ping IP:
ciscoasa# ping
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to, timeout is 2 seconds:
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/1 ms

any help will be  very much appreciated.
