Identifies you as a particular user on the bot.
Authenticates you as a particular user on the bot.
This will authenticate you on the bot as "username" until you quit from IRC. You cannot auth as another user whilst you are already authed. To unauth, reconnect to the network.
Usage: /msg [email protected] AUTH username password
For example: /msg [email protected] AUTH John 1234john
Important: due to security reasons we encourage you to use the alternative authentication method /auth. The /msg [email protected] AUTH command should only be used if you can't get /auth working for some reason.
/auth username password
For example:. /auth John 1234john
Some clients may already use the /auth alias for their own purpose, if you are not getting a reply from Q, you can use /quote to bypass your client's functions:
/quote auth username password
For example: /quote auth John 1234john
