www.asp.net is a microsoft's site. Offline Explorer Pro can't download the site if the staring page is set to www.asp.net and "load files from the starting server" with no level limit . It just omits almost all links within the starting page and stop downloading and reports "read transaction complete. status: 301 Object Moved"

I remember I ever downloaded this site successfully last week using a different Offline Explorer Pro or configuration...

This happens because most of the links lead to other sites. Please allow downloads from all servers in this project.

Hi Oleg,

I fully know how to configure the basic options in offline explorer. Although there are links pointing to outside, a lot of links on the main page DO only point to within the www.asp.net, and these pages won't be downloaded.

When I run the software at home (ADSL access), everything settled. When I switch to campus public computer (LAN access) using the portable version of offline explorer (it won't allow any software to be installed), this happens. The reason I prefer to use it on public computer is because my home bandwidth is limited.

Let's say we click the link on the left top of the main page "get-started", the browser will turn to "http://www.asp.net/get-started" which is exactly within the site. However the public computer won't retrieve this linked page while my home computer will.

I clearly remember I ever downloaded this site successfully. I suspect I changed some settings within the offline explorer or the network administrator changed some settings.

How can I fix it? Please help me out...

Frankly, it looks like some caching proxy server that redirects some requests. You may turn on logging in Offline Explorer (Ctrl+Q and click the first button on the Log toolbar) and start the download. You will be able to see where exactly it redirects.
