Yes, you are correct, Jan. There is no way to reliably determine the
remote ip/port from the Target's standpoint.
With this in mind, I am going to adjust my proposal such that when the
TCP connection is established from the Target to a Initiator/Proxy, a
four-byte integer in network byte order is sent from the
Initiator/Proxy to the Target. That integer will be the remote port
which the Target will use to identify itself.
Obviously, it's not ideal to have _any_ line protocol, but if we must,
I'd prefer it to be as minimal as possible.
