You don't need samba when moving files between linux boxes.
Samba is for windows networks.
This is really
easy, just two steps, because ftp
should already be installed (if not, just install it, same procedure as for ssh):
1] Install ssh on both
boxes like this
sudo apt-get install ssh
2] In nautilus (your file manager) enter sftp://username@IP.OF.OTHER.BOX
Enter the password (for the user on the other box)
Drag & drop files between the machines
