Well not necessarily obviously - it could be connected via a different protocol 
such as netbios or cifs or via a higher layer such as lpr or ipp.

The poitn I'm trying to make is that network connections are for resources 
accessed via a server on the network, e.g. a printer shared out via cifs 
(samba) or LPD.

A printer connected directly to your PC via TCP - usually a RAW connection on 
port 9100, is regarded as local. The difference is that there is no mediating 
server.
