-h server[:port]
  Uses the specified server and port.
--hold Holds remaining jobs on the named printer. Useful for allowing the current job to complete before performing maintenance.

  Sets the message associated with the stopped state. If no reason is specified then the message is set to "Reason Unknown".
--release
  Releases pending jobs for printing. Use after running cupsdisable with the --hold option to resume printing.

CONFORMING TO

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-sensitive.

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.
