three18ti has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello Monks,

I am attempting to use POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickServID to identify with NickServ, however, I receive the following error:

irc_421: '' 'NICKSERV :Unknown command' [2]

My _start event looks like this:

sub _start { my $irc = POE::Component::IRC::State->spawn( nick => $nick, Username => $username, ircname => $desc, server => $server_address, ); $_[HEAP]{dns} = POE::Component::Client::DNS->spawn; $_[HEAP]{irc} = $irc; $irc->plugin_add( 'NickServID', POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickServID->new( Password => 'superdupersecret' ), ); $irc->plugin_add( 'AutoJoin', POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::AutoJoin->new( Channels => $channel, ), ); $irc->yield( register => 'all' ); $irc->yield( 'connect' ); return; }

The full output of the event is the standard NickServ notice, followed by a failure to authenticate

irc_notice: 'NickServ!' [1] 'This nickname is r +egistered and protected. If it is your' irc_notice: 'NickServ!' [1] 'nick, type /msg Ni +ckServ IDENTIFY password. Otherwise,' irc_notice: 'NickServ!' [1] 'please choose a di +fferent nick.' irc_221: '' '+' [1] irc_421: '' 'NICKSERV :Unknown command' [2]

Is this an issue with the user or the POE plugin? I think I followed the directions properly, but maybe not...

Thanks, I appreciate the assistance.
