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

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"
            Sets the reason string that is shown for a printer that is reject-
            ing jobs.

COMPATIBILITY
       Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to  con-
       tain  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.
