johnywhy: Seems SASL is an irc server thing that some irc servers request to give you access. I have no knowledge about this and do not know if netcat, nc or telnet can be used to support this SASL request. Sorry. What server are you trying to connect to?

freenode.

i don't know if the info below will be useful, but FWIW:

freenode says:
Quote:
When there are repeated problems with abuse or anti-social behavior from an IP range, and the users on that IP range seem to have the ability to rapidly change between many different IPs, freenode is left with the uncomfortable choices of completely blocking access to the entire range, doing nothing, or turning to SASL. SASL allows freenode to avoid a complete block while still mitigating potential abuse.

Client support for SASL relies on the CAP IRC client extension
https://freenode.net/sasl/


(btw, they're not talking about me-- i pretty much never even use irc. whenever i try irc tech support, seems like nobody ever answers anyway Very Happy No rush implementing this for my sake-- i can always just use their web-client)

here's about the cap extension:
Quote:
The capabilities extension is implemented by addition of one command
with several subcommands. The command added is *CAP*. CAP takes a
single, required subcommand, optionally followed by a single
parameter consisting of a space-separated list of capabilities.
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-mitchell-irc-capabilities-01#section-3


here are some cap SASL links:

https://github.com/ircv3/ircv3.github.io/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=sasl
https://metacpan.org/search?q=sasl&size=20

thx!

No one answers because most of the nicks are simply lurking...in terms of helping, building a sence of community or doing anything positive, they are as useful as dead skin cells.

in contrast, peeps on the puppy forum are active, responsive, excited, enthusiastic, and super helpful.

but really, what else would you expect from people who use an operating system with a cute, adorable, lovable name like "Puppy"?

Very Happy
