HT Stop/Start Individual Print Queues


I'm using the RedHat 7.2 Linux distro (kernel 2.4.7-10).
In AIX, you can stop/start individual print queues by typing
enable (or disable) <print queue name> without having to stop/start the entire lpd daemon. Is there a way I can do this in Linux? I'd like to find a way, if possible, to reset queues on individual printers without disrupting printing on all the other printers I have set up on our Linux print server. All the printers are remote to the Linux print server.

re:stopping/starting individual queues

Ok, I found the answer. I should type lpc and then when I type help it gives me a complete command summary. So, to do what i wanted i can just type lpc and then enable/disable <queuename>. Nice!
