Change remote server name (not address)?

Last edited:
Hi,

I am backing up a server to a remote Synology. Synology connects to it via the hostname of my WAN that resolves to the ip. Everything works.

However in the backup list the server is listed as the hostname. I want to add a more descriptive name, especially if I am going to back up several hosts "behind" a single ip via port redirects. Is it possible to change the visible name without changing hostname or ip?

These are actually different servers and in dire need of a better name or description, especially as i see the number of them growing:

That is correct, ABB port needs to be open indeed. I missed that part of the request.
