To test whether Samba is installed or not…

type following command…
testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf

Testparm will parse your configuration file and report any unknown parameters or incorrect syntax. It also performs a check for common misconfigurations and will issue a warning if one is found.

Samba is one method.

Another method is to execute an ftp service in any Windows server and configure the Windows share drive as the home folder in the ftp service. Connect Linux server to the ftp service to transfer files. This set-up is worth it when there needs to be frequent transfer of files.

For one time transfers use, winscp tools.
