I am setting up wGet on an XP Windows platform for downloading a database, once established I'll attempt to mirror it.
The command line I have supplied is as follows:

C:\Documents and Settings\user> "C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin\wget.exe" -N -c -S -r -l 0 -k -p -w 1 -x -t 0 -np -A * --preserve-permissions --user=anonymous address@hidden -P "I:\host_stuff\" -o "I:\Logs\wGet\" "ftp://ftp.host.domain.com/dir1/db/";

Stdout =>
SYSTEM_WGETRC = c:/progra~1/wget/etc/wgetrc
syswgetrc = C:\Program Files\GnuWin32/etc/wgetrc
--2011-06-05 19:47:57--  http://.texlive2010/
Resolving .texlive2010... failed: Host not found.
C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin\wget: unable to resolve host address `.texlive2010

           Then it eventually gets to the host's URL

unlink: Invalid argument

Then process dies and returns the shell prompt.
One thing that I have noticed is that I entered the directory format for the C:\, and I:\ directories in Microsoft's format with "\" but Stdout spit them back out in UNIX syntax when it complains of "Invalid arguments". I also changed the wgetrc file in both the bin and the etc directories to .wgetrc and added default parameters to them, returned them to original MT state also.

Hopefully, someone can tell me where I am messing up.
