NAME         top

       cupsaccept/cupsreject - accept/reject jobs sent to a destination

SYNOPSIS         top

       cupsaccept [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h hostname[:port] ]
       cupsreject [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -r reason
       ] destination(s)

DESCRIPTION         top

       The cupsaccept command instructs the printing system to accept print
       jobs to the specified destinations.

       The cupsreject command instructs the printing system to reject print
       jobs to the specified destinations.  The -r option sets the reason
       for rejecting print jobs. If not specified, the reason defaults to
       "Reason Unknown".

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are supported by both cupsaccept and

       -E   Forces encryption when connecting to the server.

       -U username
            Sets the username that is sent when connecting to the server.

       -h hostname[:port]
            Chooses an alternate server.

       -r "reason"
            Sets the reason string that is shown for a printer that is
            rejecting jobs.

CONFORMING TO         top

       The cupsaccept and cupsreject commands correspond to the System V
       printing system commands "accept" and "reject", respectively.  Unlike
       the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to contain
       any printable character except SPACE, TAB, "/", or "#".  Also,
       printer and class names are not case-sensitive.

       Finally, the CUPS versions may ask the user for an access password
       depending on the printing system configuration.
