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

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

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.

CONFORMING TO
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.
