That's correct. The 'server' part (ethersrv) is only implemented for Linux.

This would require to create an ethersrv version for Windows, which is not in my plans - I simply don't do Windows.
In general, EtherDFS is not meant to be a tool for PC-to-PC data exchange. It's rather a "multiple PCs share the same network drive" solution. EtherSRV could be hosted on some small (linux-based) home server, like a Raspberry Pi or so, which shares its drives through Samba (for Windows hosts) and EtherSRV (for DOS hosts). The Linux server could even be hosted as a virtual machine on some Windows host, if hardware is scarce.
