"NAS and a linux rsync server". The module name means the task/mission
name you setup in the linux rsync server."

Is what I see. And this is what I don't really understand.
What to do ?

modules are used when you use an rsync daemon. Check the rsync man page
for how to configure rsync daemons.

Be aware that using a rsync daemon and the associated complexity is
totally optional.

I always just use plain old rsync on the client. If there is not a
rsync server available on the remote machine, it uses ssh to connect
to the remote and fire up an instance of rsync on that end and
communications goes from there.

Takes zero upfront config assuming you have ssh logins available.
