It can also be used to set the server default printer or class. .LP When specified before the \fI-d\fR, \fI-p\fR, or \fI-x\fR options, the \fI-E\fR option forces encryption when connecting to the server. .LP The first form of the command (\fI-d\fR) sets the default printer or class to \fIdestination\fR. Subsequent print jobs submitted via the \fIlp(1)\fR or \fIlpr(1)\fR commands will use this destination unless the user specifies otherwise with the \fIlpoptions(1)\fR command. .LP The second form of the command (\fI-p\fR) configures the named printer or class. The additional options are described below. .LP The third form of the command (\fI-x\fR) deletes the printer or class \fIdestination\fR. Any jobs that are pending for the destination will be removed and any job that is currently printed will be aborted. .SH CONFIGURATION OPTIONS The following options are recognized when configuring a printer queue: .TP 5 -c class .br Adds the named \fIprinter\fR to \fIclass\fR. If \fIclass\fR does not exist it is created automatically. .TP 5 -i interface .br Sets a System V style interface script for the printer. This option cannot be specified with the \fI-P\fR option (PPD file) and is intended for providing support for legacy printer drivers. .TP 5 -m model .br Sets a standard System V interface script or PPD file for the printer from the \fImodel\fR directory or using one of the driver interfaces. Use the \fI-m\fR option with the \fIlpinfo(8)\fR command to get a list of supported models. .TP 5 -o job-k-limit=value .br Sets the kilobyte limit for per-user quotas. The value is an integer number of kilobytes; one kilobyte is 1024 bytes. .TP 5 -o job-page-limit=value .br Sets the page limit for per-user quotas. The value is the integer number of pages that can be printed; double-sided pages are counted as two pages. .TP 5 -o job-quota-period=value .br Sets the accounting period for per-user quotas. The value is an integer number of seconds; 86,400 seconds are in one day. .TP 5 -o job-sheets-default=banner .TP 5 -o job-sheets-default=banner,banner .br Sets the default banner page(s) to use for print jobs. .TP 5 -o name=value .br Sets a PPD option for the printer. PPD options can be listed using the \fI-l\fR option with the \fIlpoptions(1)\fR command. .TP 5 -o name-default=value .br Sets a default server-side option for the destination. Any print-time option can be defaulted, e.g. "-o cpi-default=17" to set the default "cpi" option value to 17. .TP 5 -o port-monitor=name .br Sets the binary communications program to use when printing, "none", "bcp", or "tbcp". The default program is "none". The specified port monitor must be listed in the printer's PPD file. .TP 5 -o printer-error-policy=name .br Sets the error policy to be used when the printer backend is unable to send the job to the printer. The name must be one of "abort-job", "retry-job", "retry-current-job", or "stop-printer". The default error policy is "stop-printer" for printers and "retry-current-job" for classes. .TP 5 -o printer-is-shared=true/false .br Sets the destination to shared/published or unshared/unpublished. Shared/published destinations are publically announced by the server on the LAN based on the browsing configuration in \fBcupsd.conf\fR, while unshared/unpublished destinations are not announced. The default value is "true". .TP 5 -o printer-op-policy=name .br Sets the IPP operation policy associated with the destination. The name must be defined in the \fBcupsd.conf\fR in a Policy section. The default operation policy is "default". .TP 5 -r class .br Removes the named \fIprinter\fR from \fIclass\fR. If the resulting class becomes empty it is removed. .TP 5 -u allow:user,user,@group .TP 5 -u deny:user,user,@group .TP 5 -u allow:all .TP 5 -u deny:none .br Sets user-level access control on a destination. Names starting with "@" are interpreted as UNIX groups. The latter two forms turn user-level access control off. .TP 5 -v "device-uri" .br Sets the \fIdevice-uri\fR attribute of the printer queue. If \fIdevice-uri\fR is a filename it is automatically converted to the form \fIfile:///file/name\fR. Use the \fI-v\fR option with the \fIlpinfo(8)\fR command to get a list of supported device URIs and schemes. .TP 5 -D "info" .br Provides a textual description of the destination. .TP 5 -E .br Enables the destination and accepts jobs; this is the same as running the \fIcupsaccept(8)\fR and \fIcupsenable(8)\fR programs on the destination. .TP 5 -L "location" .br Provides a textual location of the destination. .TP 5 -P ppd-file .br Specifies a PostScript Printer Description file to use with the printer. If specified, this option overrides the \fI-i\fR option (interface script). .SH COMPATIBILITY 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 \fInot\fR case-sensitive. Finally, the CUPS version of \fIlpadmin\fR may ask the user for an access password depending on the printing system configuration. This differs from the System V version which requires the root user to execute this command. .SH LIMITATIONS The CUPS version of \fIlpadmin\fR does not support all of the System V or Solaris printing system configuration options. .SH SEE ALSO \fIcupsaccept(8)\fR, \fIcupsenable(8)\fR, \fIlpinfo(8)\fR, \fIlpoptions(1)\fR, .br http://localhost:631/help .SH COPYRIGHT Copyright 2007-2010 by Apple Inc. .\" .\" End of "$Id: lpadmin.man 7600 2008-05-20 21:06:23Z mike $". .\"
