Trying to export a SP2010 site running on a 64 bit Win Server 2008 R2 and i get "unable to contact site at address ********, please check the URL.
 
I am a server admin, farm admin etc., so that is not the problem.
 
can someone let me know what the problem might be and what the syntax for the "Site URL:" should be please?

You need to run the program as your farm account. Right Click > Run As > Input your Farm Account details. You could also use another account which has the appropriate permissions to the database.
