This module automatically identifies you with NickServ, but it's recommended to use Sasl which identifies you to NickServ even before you are visible on the network.

Usage[edit]

Arguments

This network module takes one optional argument. The argument is your nickserv password. If you don't supply it on load, you must supply it later via the IRC interface. After nickserv was loaded, the password is removed from the module arguments for security reasons.

Read loading modules to learn more about loading modules.

Commands[edit]

help[edit]

Displays documentation for all nickserv commands.

/msg *nickserv help

set[edit]

Sets and saves your nickserv password.

/msg *nickserv set <password>

Note: The password is saved unencrypted, so don't make your ZNC data directory readable to other users!

clear[edit]

Deletes the saved password.

/msg *nickserv clear

ViewCommands[edit]

ViewCommands displays the patterns for each of the above commands that map to the literal strings being passed to the NickServ service on the irc host.

/msg *nickserv ViewCommands

SetCommand[edit]

SetCommand allows you to change the pattern used to generate the string passed to the NickServ service on the irc host. This is useful when the irc host you're connecting to doesn't conform to the standard NickServ name or format.

/msg *nickserv SetCommand <command name> <new command pattern>

Example to change the IDENTIFY command to conform to the dal.net standard.

/msg *nickserv SetCommand IDENTIFY PRIVMSG nickserv@services.dal.net :IDENTIFY {password}

Additional NickServ Documentation[edit]
