IRCCD-PLUGIN-AUTH(7) Miscellaneous Information Manual IRCCD-PLUGIN-AUTH(7)

irccd auth plugin

The plugin auth provides generic authentication to the most popular services.

For the moment, auth supports the following backends:

the NickServ service, using /msg NickServ identify user pass
the service, using /msg AUTH user pass

The plugin auth is distributed with irccd. To enable it add the following to your plugins section:
auth = ""

You must configure the file to enable authentication.

In your irccd.conf file, add the [plugin.auth] section and fill with the following parameters:
server.type (string)
must be nickserv or quakenet.
server.password (string)
the password.
server.username (string)
the username to use. Required for quakenet, optional for nickserv.

Note: you must replace server with one defined in a [server] section.

Example of configuration:

freenode.type = "nickserv"
freenode.password = "mysecretpassword"
freenode.username = "jeanfrancois"

wanadoo.type = "nickserv"
wanadoo.password = "wanadoo is dead"
