Some more debugging ideas.

As a pre-command use cmd.exe. Also, enable WPKG Client GUI for debugging 
(WPKG user interface -> Show) - without it, you won't see any windows.

Reboot, and when cmd.exe window starts, try to connect to that webserver 
and fetch that file using telnet, i.e. (start telnet, and type "GET 
/some_file.xml HTTP/1.0"):

# telnet 80
Connected to router (
Escape character is '^]'.
GET /some_file.xml HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
