Version: 2.2-feature
CUPS.org User: jarichar

Requesting the ability to redirect a print queue to another. For example if a printer breaks provide the ability to send its entire print queue to another queue or maybe multiple queues. Similar to the redirect command functionality that exists in LPRNG.

If anybody is interested, I created a new backend "redirect" which can be configured by "redirect.conf" in $SERVER_ROOT. Basically it is a small shell script, I use for debugging and multiple other purposes like circumventing defect printers or avoiding to cancel 800+ print jobs: They are temporarily redirected to p02 = file:/dev/null.

Just drop me a short note to mailto:shw@schwarzer.d.uunet.de with the keyword CUPS in subject.

Thanks for filing the RFE. I don't know if we will add this feature to 1.2, but it is in the queue! :)

May it be possible to add this feature to 1.4?
The only feature I still missing in CUPS.

It would be great if we can see and change redirections with lpadmin or a similar lp command.
