Configuring HexChat for SASL

Please note that at the time of writing, HexChat supports a maximum password length of 85 characters.

  1. Open the Network List (Ctrl + S)
  2. If the IRC4Fun network exists in the list, then click on Edit and skip ahead to step 5
  3. If it does not yet exist in the list, click Add and type IRC4Fun, then hit enter and click on Edit
  4. Replace the string newserver/6667 with
  5. In the User name field, enter your primary nick
  6. Select SASL (username + password) for the Login method field
  7. In the Password field, enter your NickServ password

If you are unable to edit the User name field, the change can be made in the User Information section on the Network List window.

If everything was configured correctly, you should see a SASL authentication successful message when you connect. You will already be identified to NickServ, so you don’t need to do this again.
