Connecting to ZNC
Connections to ZNC using SSL:
First get the fingerprint of the self-signed cert
$ openssl s_client -connect my.bouncer.net:6697 </dev/null 2>/dev/null | openssl x509 -in /dev/stdin -noout -fingerprint -sha256 | sed s/://g | cut -c 20-
/server add BNC my.bouncer.net/6697 -ssl -username=username/network -password=password -autoconnect /set irc.server.BNC.ssl_fingerprint PutFingerPrintHere /connect BNC /save
It does not connect.
If port 6697 is the SSL port, you need to specify that it's SSL port with /set irc.server.BNC.ssl on
This is a failed attempt due to not specifying the "irc.server.BNC.ssl on" or "-ssl"
05:46:47 BNC =!= | irc: connection refused 05:46:47 BNC -- | irc: reconnecting to server in 10 seconds 05:46:57 BNC -- | irc: reconnecting to server... 05:46:57 BNC -- | irc: connecting to server my.bouncer.net/6697 (SSL)... 05:46:58 BNC =!= | irc: connection refused
This is for plain non-ssl connections.
/server add BNC my.bouncer.net/6667 -username=username/network -password=password -autoconnect /connect BNC /save
Specifying username/network:password later
/set irc.server.bnc.username username/network /set irc.server.bnc.password password
Disabling automatic switching of buffer
When you connect WeeChat to ZNC, your channels change a lot until you are joined everywhere. This can be disabled with the following commands:
