drop box blocked by pix 506 router

I think dropbox is being blocked the pix firewall.

we connected the PCs bypasses the firewall with a hot spot and were able to connect to dropbox, which leds me to believe the firewall is blocking access. attached is the running config of the PIX. If someone call help me determine it is the firewall, if so help me remove the block.

Dropbox uses the same port as your web browser, so if you can browse, then the firewall is probably not blocking Dropbox. See this Dropbox knowledgebase article below.

Perhaps uninstall Dropbox, restart and then install it again to see if that fixes the issue.

we tried that, we actually cannot access the site. I had my technician go through the firewall using a laptop, and he could not get to the website. when he took the same laptop and went out through a portable hotspot, he was able to got to the website. I have attached the running config file. maybe you can see something I don't.

Dropbox.com is 108.160.165.62 and I do not find that address in your configuration. I do not see anything else in your Cisco configuration. You might look at the implications of "floodguard enable"

I use Dropbox and it is not hindered anywhere I try to use it.
