Configuring SASL for ZNC

ZNC ≥1.0 includes an official SASL module. Details can be found on the ZNC wiki.

  1. Load the SASL module as you would any other module, following the instructions here.

  2. Configure the supported mechanisms: /msg *sasl Mechanism PLAIN

  3. Configure your authentication credentials. AccountName must be the primary nick, not a grouped nick. Replace Password with your Nickserv password. /msg *sasl Set AccountName Password

The next time ZNC reconnects, it should identify automatically.
