Configuring SASL for Hexchat
These instructions were originally contributed by BlueShark. Thanks!
HexChat is a fork of XChat has in-built SASL support. It doesn't require any additional scripts for that purpose. The setup procedure is simple.
- Open the Network List (Ctrl + S)
- The freenode network may already exist; find it in the list then click on Edit
- In the username field, enter your primary nick
SASL (username + password)for the Login method field
- In the SASL password field, enter your NickServ password
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.
