[arm-allstar] node server name on network scan

That's generally a function of reverse DNS. You'll need to configure the
PTR record on your DNS server so that it responds with the node name when
the IP is queried.

If this is a home router type of situation, this may or may not be possible.

While not recommended, when using DHCP to configure the IP on the node,
 many home routers will associate the node's host name with the IP and
respond with it when a reverse DNS query is done.

Setting the node with a static IP is preferred.
