See how I can bypass all the detail of above?...:-)

The example makes sense and my initial testing went well.
Except for the "*" to mark active session - it was missing here.
In *my* words - the UPLOAD command serves the same function as the
SOURCE command:  the SOURCE command is applied locally and UPLOAD is
applied to the active remote host session.

I'm beginning to think my initial thought about UPLOAD has a little
Instead of trashing UPLOAD...
"UPLOAD <file>" should be replaced with "SOURCE <file> [<session #>]"
Because UPLOAD *should have* a <session #> parameter to remove ambiguity
the work might be the same.
Before you nail me on the missing <session #>, consider doing your
example to two remotes simultaneously.
Nothing about session structure prevents simultaneous remote connects.
That makes a lot more sense to me at this moment...

Actually - I *might* be wrong about simultaneous sessions if they are
*active* and receiving packets from more than one source...  More later.
