The error is smb authentication error. You need to configure smb signing on the windows server that is sharing the data. Go to google and browse smb error 36. Read some of the information there will tell you what you need to do.

because it's one way. create an user account in your corporate lan for the mac. use that username and password to login to the mac or to map the drive from the mac. use the security built in to AD to regulate security on your lan for the mac user.
and check out which firewall ports need to remain open for your lan server os at

Look at the following KB article.;en-us;316076

If that does not help.

Try to edit registry on windows server

Change from 1 to 0

If this is a domain controller, you may need to set it with the 'Domain Controller Security Policy' editor under the 'Administrative Tools' Menu. Otherwise it'll be reset nightly.
You need to go to 'Security Settings', 'Local Policies', 'Security Options'. You then need to set the 'Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications' to disabled. It is enabled by default.

These are usually the issues I have when connecting OS X to Windows Networks.
