NAME
       cupsdisable, cupsenable - stop/start printers and classes

SYNOPSIS
       cupsdisable  [  -E  ]  [	-U username ] [	-c ] [ -h server[:port]	] [ -r
       reason ]	[ --hold ] destination(s)
       cupsenable [ -E ] [ -U username ]  [  -c	 ]  [  -h  server[:port]  ]  [
       --release ] destination(s)

DESCRIPTION
       cupsenable starts the named printers or classes while cupsdisable stops
       the named printers or classes.

OPTIONS
       The following options may be used:

       -E   Forces encryption of the connection	to the server.

       -U username
	    Uses the specified username	when connecting	to the server.

       -c   Cancels all	jobs on	the named destination.

       -h server[:port]
	    Uses the specified server and port.

       --hold
	    Holds remaining jobs on the	named printer.	 Useful	 for  allowing
	    the	current	job to complete	before performing maintenance.

       -r "reason"
	    Sets  the message associated with the stopped state.  If no	reason
	    is specified then the message is set to "Reason Unknown".

       --release
	    Releases pending jobs for printing.	 Use after running cupsdisable
	    with the --hold option to resume printing.

CONFORMING TO
       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 System V versions of	these commands are disable and enable, respec-
       tively.	They have been renamed to avoid	 conflicts  with  the  bash(1)
       build-in	commands of the	same names.

       The  CUPS versions of disable and enable	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.
