Thanks but, no, that didn't work. The strange thing is that the GetURL 
example notebook for J/Link works. I believe this is an older 
implementation, before the functionality was included in Import.

So, I'm still looking for an answer, if anyone has an idea. I have also 
asked Wolfram support who have made some suggestions but not solved the 
problem yet.
