NAME

SYNOPSIS

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

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

DESCRIPTION

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

cupsreject 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

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"

COMPATIBILITY

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.

The CUPS versions of accept and reject may ask the user for an access password depending on the printing system configuration. This differs from the System V versions which require the root user to execute these commands.
