The protocol you are inquiring about is called SMB/CIFS.
Server Message Block/Common Internet File System.
The name in itself is very misleading, CIFS is not an Internet FS in any
way, but part of M$ file/print sharing implementation.
To answer your question, Samba is a fully functional SMB/CIFS server and
The client is provided as utilities like smbclient, smbmount.
On some systems you even get the option to use smbfs in fstab.
