cupsaccept/cupsreject - accept/reject jobs sent to a destination
cupsaccept [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] destination(s) cupsreject [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -r reason ] destination(s)
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".
The following options are supported by both cupsaccept and cupsreject: -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.
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.
