You can run the Samba client software on the laptop, or change the file
sharing on the server to NFS.  Or, of course, you could change both to
some third sharing solution.  Which depends on your assessment of the
pros/cons of each; performance, interoperability (do you potentially have
other machines that need to reach those resources?), security , etc.

For the short term, running smbclient on the laptop is probably the
quickest way to get your connectivity back with the fewest config changes,
if that helps.
