I'm not quite sure why you chose SAMBA as your protocol. Did you have windows boxen on your network at one time, 'cause that is what it was designed for, connecting windows machines to linux machines.

I'm sure there are better/faster ways of doing it between linux machines, though. NFS, SSH, and a few others are fast and mature.

But as for your question, I've never done it, but I would think that is you have the directories that you want to share advertised in samba.conf, you should be able to create a mountpoint on the client machine and copy that way. The only way I use samba is for my windows machine to access the linux host. I would rather use NFS, because it's faster, but I bought Win7 Pro, which does not provide NFS [Ultimate does, but at the time I didn't know that.]
