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
       following 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.
