[async] Ability to set remote log location when async jobs are started through websockets

It is not possible to start an asyc session that has:


     "level": "log",

     "local_dir": "/path/to/local/log",

     "remote_dir": "/path/to/remote/log" ß this must not be set


Without setting a remote log, all jobs are logged into:

Linux: /var/log/messages

Windows: C:\program files\aspera\enterprise server\var\log

While this is OK when using the transfer server pair of a single async job at a time, it will make troubleshooting harder when we use the URI feature to use the same server pair for multiple concurrent jobs.

The request is to allow setting remote log location as shown in the json above.
