       cupsdisable, cupsenable - stop/start printers and classes


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


       cupsenable starts the named printers or classes.

       cupsdisable stops the named printers or classes.  The following options may be used:

            Forces encryption of the connection to the server.

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

            Cancels all jobs on the named destination.

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

            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".

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


       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-

       The  System V versions of these commands are disable and enable. They have been renamed to
       avoid conflicts with the bash(1) build-in commands of the same name.

       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.
