Printer redirect #1240
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.
CUPS.org User: schwarzera
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:firstname.lastname@example.org with the keyword CUPS in subject.
