Scheduling Feeds

I have set up a feed to import on a regular basis and I have used the Cron url with the EasyCon service as I understand external Cron jobs often run more reliably than those from within Drupal. I have tested the EasyCron job and it runs ok. However the feed source file ( a .csv ) fails to be imported. If I do the import via the UI it works fine. The problem therefore seems to be that I have failed to set up correctly the Feeds import – Cron link. What am I doing wrong ? Thanks.
