Default How to restore a local backup?

Hi all. I have been supplied with a .BAK file for an SQL database. The backup is on my local machine. The SQL server we need to restore it to is remotely hosted by a large hosting company. Using SQL Server Management Studio I can connect to the remote database without a problem but when I try to restore the backup from a file it only allows me to view the remote machine's hard drive, not my local machine.

Does anyone know a way around this?
