I want to open the map of this url but I can't. I see that is a .map file, but I need this. Can I open this map with SHARPMAP?
Dim wmsUrl As String = ""
Excuses and thank.

Maybe you're looking for MapServer ( instead of SharpMap? As far as I know there are no extensions for SharpMap that allow you to view MapServer maps.

Also, I probably don't have to mention that is localhost, so if someone else gave you that url it's useless to you?

If I understand MapServer correctly (it's been a few years), that URL will render a map which would be suitable as a WMS layer. SharpMap can use WMS v1.3 currently. The Add a WMS layer "how to" page might give you some help.
