smb is the server. You are not running the samba server, you have the common files that allow you to connect to a windows network. If you install gvfs as well, then you can use nautilus file manager to connect to windows shares.
If you want to run a samba server then you must install it.
Use add/remove software and search for samba. All the relevant samba files and programs will show up. The server comes under the name "samba".
