NAME

       (cups)disable/(cups)enable - stop/start printers and classes


SYNOPSIS

       disable [ -E ] [ -c ] [ -h server ] [ -r reason ] destination(s)
       cupsdisable [ -E ] [ -c ] [ -h server ] [ -r reason ] destination(s)
       enable [ -E ] destination(s)
       cupsenable [ -E ] destination(s)


DESCRIPTION

       enable or cupsenable starts the named printers or classes.

       disable  or  cupsdisable stops the named printers or classes.  The fol-
       lowing options may be used:

       -c
            Cancels all jobs on the named destination.

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

       The -E option forces encryption when connecting to the server.


COMPATIBILITY

       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.
