Authing with Q on Quakenet

    It would be great if znc could automatically auth me with Q upon connecting with Quakenet.
    I think it can be done with the perform module, but i don't know how.
    Who can tell me how to, please ?

    Thnx a lot.

      It should work with
      /msg *perform add msg AUTH <username> <password>

      Of course you have to load the module before with
      /msg *status loadmod perform
      or via config

        Well it even works by doing just /msg AUTH <username> <password> ,but both commands require logging on to znc with a client and manually entering the command.
        What i rather have is znc to auth for me.

        I tried putting the command in de znc.conf like this:

        LoadModule = perform /msg AUTH <username> <password>

        But that didnt work. Maybe i got the syntax wrong or it doesnt work at all ?

      you have to work with the IRC protocol messages (not with mIRC or other IRC client commands).

      In your case it'll be:

      /msg *perform add PRIVMSG :AUTH username password

      And you CANT add perform commands via the arguments in the LoadModule line in the znc.conf!
      You have to add it the way we wrote.

      Best reagards

        So if i understand you correct i can't get znc to automatically auth me with Q ?

        Why is it exactly i should use

        /msg *perform add PRIVMSG :AUTH <username> <password>

        instead of

        /msg AUTH <username> <password>

        Th latter does seem to work fine too when issued in xchat while connected to znc ?

          when you do

          /msg *perform add PRIVMSG :AUTH <username> <password>

          you are telling znc to send the auth message to Q when znc reconnects the next time (it isnt send at the time you do this).

          So after you did this, znc will auth you with Q on the next connect (if the perform module is loaded).

          /msg *perform add PRIVMSG :AUTH <username> <password>
          /msg AUTH <username> <password>
          are *not* the same, the latter auth you with Q, the first one tells znc to auth you with Q on the next reconnect.
