Im using Xchat on Ubuntu. I have configured Xchat for tor, and connect by using the line:
/server p4fsi4ockecnea7l.onion

I get disconnected because "You need to identify via SASL...(SASL access only)"
I have already added "cap_sasl_xchat.pl" to ~/.xchat2/ and I get the message "SASL: auth loaded from ..." when I start Xchat, so I know the script is there. I have tried the "set" command with "/sasl" yet I cant get it to work. I have tried:
/sasl set FreeNode mynick mypass plain
/sasl set irc.freenode.net mynick mypass plain
/sasl set p4fsi4ockecnea7l.onion mynick mypass plain

yet I still cant connect, for the same reason (SASL access only)
Is it a prerequisite that people were previously registered to freenode?

I really want some bitcoin irc chat so any help would be appreciated!

Have you tried the steps here? http://blog.freenode.net/2010/01/connecting-to-freenode-using-tor-sasl/

You will need to modify them a bit to make them work in XChat but that shouldn't be too tough.

Let me know if it works.

Yes I have installed the script. Looking at that site it says I have to have a registered nick... but I cant connect to the non-tor server, both with and without using tor myself. this has consumed alot of time on just retrying...

Nevermind, figured it out.
I first managed somehow to succeed connecting unregistered to nickserv, I just had to edit the username and password and restart XChat. Registered to NickServ, then was able to connect through tor.
