Do i need to make my computer accessible from the internet for the sample push client application to work?

Hi everyone,

                      I really need help on this and am sure a lot of people out there have done this before but for some reason I just can't get it to work. Now what i want to do is to integrate the BB push service into my already developed Webworks app. Now i've downloaded the SDK and the getting started guide. Now i've also installed everything and it all works fine. Accessing https://localhost:8443/sample-push-initiator and any of the other URLs for the sample app works fine and there's no issue there. Now here's where i'm having issues. I downloaded the Sample Push Enabled Application on my BB9900 device and in the settings screen i've put in all the parameters necessary. Now in the Push Initiator application URL field, i put in https://localhost:8443/sample-push-initiator and then when i try to register, i get an error that the URL must be accessible from the internet. Now this is where i'm confused. Do i need to get my local computer (laptop) accessible via the internet and if so how do you even do that. If not, please can I know why i'm getting this error. I'll really appreciate any help from the guys on here. Thanks in advance.
