You can setup an FTP server on the Windows server and transfer it that way
Or you can map a windows share on the Linux server and just copy it to correct folder.

1.) If you have a web server and perl on your windows server, you could run a cgi script to accept http-post request from the linux server

2.) If you have cygwin on the windows server, you could try using rsync / netcat (never tried that myself).

3.) ftp is the easiest

On the newer versions of Windows you can also mount NFS on it, exported on your linux server.
