Using SASL

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.)

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.
