HexChat is a fork of XChat with in-built SASL support. It doesn’t require any additional scripts for that purpose. The setup procedure is simple.
Please note that at the time of writing, HexChat supports a maximum password length of 85 characters.
User namefield, enter your Authserv account name
SASL (username + password)for the Login method field
Passwordfield, enter your Authserv 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 Authserv, so you don’t need to do this again.
