Connect Fedora Server to NAS share

I am trying to connect a Fedora server to a Synology NAS for a local backup as the NAS is already existing and has a large amount of storage. I can browse the folder on the NAS from Windows and Linux clients but cannot get the drive mapped in fstab or using Cockpit. I have tried for a while and don't see where the issue is. What is the correct format for the fstab?
Edit: I have read the Fedora documentation and man pages but still no working config. Also install the cifs-utils package to try and map from within Cockpit. No luck.

First things first, what is the format of the share? "Share" isn't a generic thing. It needs to be specific... SFTP, NFS, SMB, AFP, and so forth.
NFS would be recommended.
@scottalanmiller NFS is enabled for the shared folder (as well as SMB and AFP) which is /nas01/backup

@JaredBusch Well, as usual that worked. I was using the DNS name instead of the IP. I would assume that is should work but it did not. It did work with the IP though. I searched the forum but did not find that post.
It also reflects the mount in Cockpit as well.
