ACCEPT(1M) Maintenance Commands ACCEPT(1M)


NAME


accept, reject - accept or reject print requests

SYNOPSIS


accept destination...


reject [-r 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.


Generally, accept and reject are run on the print server to control local
print queues. Under some configurations, accept and reject are run on
client systems when IPP is being used to communicate between client and
server.

OPTIONS


The following options are supported for reject:

-r reason
Assigns a reason for rejection of print requests for
destination.

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. Enclose reason in quotes if it contains blanks.


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 or URI-style (scheme://endpoint) names.
See printers.conf(4) for information regarding the naming
conventions for destinations.


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.


When IPP is in use, the user is prompted for a passphrase if the remote
print service is configured to require authentication.
