Upload to a URL *sounds* like you want to do the upload by http rather
than ftp.

In this case you can do it with a Python CGI on the server and a script
on the client that communicates with the CGI.

When voidspace is back up you can find a pair of scripts that do just
that :

Hint - filelist = [os.path.join(directory, entry) for entry in
os.listdir(directory)]
