Connecting my NAS to Ubuntu Mate 20.04

In the past I have not had trouble connecting to my WDMy Cloud Ultra NAS vut since putting Mate on a spare machine the OS merely claims it can't get a reply from the NAS.

I've checked the NAS, no doubtrunning some sort of LInux and it should just connect to the the NAS automatically.

Are the some faemons that should be running to do this or do I have to access it via windows networking using a SAMBA file?
