Windows 7: Sharing printer only possible in a Home network?

Sharing printer only possible in a Home network?

Is it required to be in the same Home network to be able to share a printer?

Or can both computers be in a public network only?

I haven't fiddled with public networks myself, but I think you can probably share the printer. You just may have to get the user explicit access (adding them specifically to the printer's security settings) for it to work.
