I repeat once again: ':' is and invalid character for path.

Here is your problem: don't mix up URI scheme with other elements of URI, learn what part is what:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URI_scheme[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_resource_identifier[^],
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_resource_locator[^].

Last referenced article contains allowed characters.

I have no idea what is that, but it should be prefixed with URI schema:
http://
ftp://
And it's '/', not '\'

Illegal character is ':'. After all, learn what characters are valid and what not!
