why do i get this when i execute pbrun.

$ pbrun ls
You are NOT allowed to use pbrun -h <remotehost> ls.
Please try again without -h option.

Host: xxxx
Submithost: xxxx.abcd.xyz.com

pbrun7.5.0-12[404]: Request rejected by pbmasterd on server1234.abcd.yyyy.com.

Actually i am trying to execute printer related commands like lpshut,lpadmin etc with pbrun but it throws the excat error as above.
