Sorry that you have not included any information about the UNIX you are
I can only guess what the problem is.
On some UNIX systems an ordinary user wants needs additional privileges if
he wants to pause a printer. To check this out you should login as such an
ordinary user directly to you UNIX box and try to pause a printer. If you
receive the same message you should check your UNIX manual to see how to
add this privilege to an ordinary user.
Pausing a printer is always working generally. This means if anybody pauses
a printer everyone can still print to this printer but there will be no
output until the printer is enabled again.
