       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 while cupsdisable stops the named printers
       or classes.


       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.

            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, respectively.   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.
