Configuring SASL for Revolution

If you have already added freenode as a server, long press on it and select Edit, and skip to step 5.

  1. On the Manage servers screen, the main screen, press + button on the bottom-right of the screen
  2. Enter a name (perhaps freenode)
  3. Enter as Server address, making sure Port is set to 6697 and Use SSL/TLS is ticked
  4. Make sure Server password is blank
  5. Select Username with password (SASL) from the Authentication mode dropdown list
  6. Enter your freenode account name as Username
  7. Enter your freenode account password as Password
  8. Enter your desired nickname(s) as Nicknames
  9. Press the tick symbol on the top-right of the screen and you will be returned to the Server list
  10. Tap on the freenode server to connect it, tap on it again to view the server output

If everything was configured correctly, you should see a SASL authentication successful message when you connect. You will already be identified, so you don't need to do this again.
