How to access a shared folder on Windows Server 2008 R2 from a MAC

Before I posted this question, I searched for similar articles and did not find what I was looking for

I have a clean recently rebuilt Windows 2008 R2 server that’s running as a standalone server in a workgroup. (It Is not in a domain)
I have a folder called DATA on this server that fully shared out with Full Control (for now)
-      I need to map a drive from a new MAC to this shared folder. What to I need to do on the MAC and/or Server?

NOTE: everything I’m reading relates policies with a domain controller – or to download the remote access client for MAC

I recall there’s a certain way to map using SMB or another protocol

Any help would be appreciated.

Finder Go menu.  Connect to server.  Then, if you're server is named "2008Server" and the share is called "MyShare", you would connect to smb://2008server/myshare

Are you saying that is not working for you?
