It's an invitation to whatever-you're-using to retrieve a file from a
remote server which is offering a Windows file share. If there's a
server called "foo" on which is a document called blort.pdf in directory
"bar" then a link to it might look like smb://foo/bar/blort.pdf.
(Compare it with http://foo/bar/blort.pdf, which is something I'm sure
you're familiar with).
There's lots of information on the web which suggests that Macs don't
interpret smb:// links well. And in any case your "smb://Test" isn't
complete: it has a server name but no document.
