OE Pro refuses to follow links

This should be a very if not most possible straightforward task. I'm trying to download all the pages
I'm trying to download all pages linked from a starting page/url.

Let me give an example. Starting at this url


i want to download all the pages that are linked to from there. So i am expecting a folder structure starting with /p to contain files like:


My problem is that OE Pro stubbornly refuses to download these pages no matter what i do. I get a folder /c containing my start page and other following pages. But not the ones above. Why?

I downloaded the site and all /p/... links were downloaded correctly. I allowed download from the starting server and all directories.

Please select this Project, click the Properties button and go to the URL Filters - Directories section. Uncheck the "Load only from the starting directory" box.

If this doesn't help, test the http://www.theworks.co.uk/p/hardware/teach-yourself-basic-computer-skills-windows-vista-edition/9780340968154 URL in the URL Filters - URL Ommissions section. It should tell if somen Project settings disallow it.
