nwpqjob(1) Perform operations on the jobs in NetWare print queue


nwpqjob [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] < -d | -r > queue_name job_ID [ another_job_ID ... ]

pqrm [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] queue_name job_ID [ another_job_ID ... ]


pqrm or nwpqjob -d remove specified jobs from the specified NetWare print queue.

nwpqjob -r resumes specified job in the specified NetWare print queue.

nwpqjob looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly a password. See nwclient(5) for more information. Please note that the access permissions of .nwclient MUST be 600, for security reasons.



Delete specified print job(s). This is default operation for pqrm.


Resume (clear OPERATOR HOLD and USER HOLD flags) specified print job(s).


queue_name is used to specify queue. You can not use wildcards in the name.

job_ID , another_job_ID

job_ID is used to specify which job has to be deleted or resumed.

-S server

server is the name of the server you want to use.

-U user name

If the user name your NetWare administrator gave to you differs from your unix user-id, you should use -U to tell the server about your NetWare user name.

-P password

You may want to give the password required by the server on the command line. You should be careful about using passwords in scripts.


-n should be given to mount shares which do not require a password to log in.

If neither -n nor -P are given, pqstat prompts for a password.


By default, passwords are converted to uppercase before they are sent to the server, because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C.
