SASL is a method that allows identification to services (NickServ) during the connection process, before anything else happens – therefore eliminating the need to
/msg NickServ identify. To use SASL, you must register your nickname. (You must confirm the email address on your account, to use SASL.) You may also register your nickname via the web with our Services Web Panel.
IRC4Fun may require the use of SASL for certain Hosts and IP ranges due to frequent abuse. (See A-Lines & GA-Lines)
SASL Client Configuration
We have instructions on how to configure SASL for some clients, below. NOTE: IRC4Fun does not support the
DH-BLOWFISH authentication mechanism.
If you know of any additions or corrections to the lists above, or would like to contribute a script or (better) documentation, contact us on IRC.
Documentation on how to create certificates and add their fingerprints to NickServ for
SASL EXTERNAL can be found in the article on NickServ and certificates.
