Configuring SASL for mIRC
mIRC added built-in SASL support in version 7.48, released April 2017. The below instructions were written for version 7.51, released September 2017. Earlier versions of mIRC have unofficial third-party support for SASL, which is not documented here. freenode strongly recommends using the latest available version of your IRC client so that you are up-to-date with security fixes.
- In the File menu, click Select Server...
- In the Connect -> Servers section of the mIRC Options window, select the correct server inside the Freenode folder, then click Edit
- In the "Login Method" dropdown, select "SASL (/CAP)"
- In the second "Password" box at the bottom of the window, enter your NickServ username, then a colon, then your NickServ password. For example, "dax:hunter2"
- Click the OK button
