NAME

accept, reject − accept or reject print requests

SYNOPSIS

accept destination...

reject [-reason] destination...

DESCRIPTION

accept allows the queueing of print requests for the named destinations.

reject prevents queueing of print requests for the named destinations.

Use lpstat -a to check if destinations are accepting or rejecting print requests.

accept and reject must be run on the print server; they have no meaning to a client system.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported for reject:
-r reason

Assigns a reason for rejection of print requests for destination. Enclose reason in quotes if it contains blanks. reason is reported by lpstat -a. By default, reason is unknown reason for existing destinations, and new printer for destinations added to the system but not yet accepting requests.

OPERANDS

The following operands are supported.
destination

The name of the destination accepting or rejecting print requests. Destination specifies the name of a printer or class of printers (see lpadmin(1M)). Specify destination using atomic name. See printers.conf(4) for information regarding the naming conventions for atomic names.

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned:

0

Successful completion.

non-zero

An error occurred.

NOTES

accept and reject affect only queueing on the print server’s spooling system. Requests made from a client system remain queued in the client system’s queueing mechanism until they are cancelled or accepted by the print server’s spooling system.

accept is CSI-enabled except for the destination name.
