in reply to [POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickServID] Unable to authenticate,

Looks like the plugin is trying to use an actual "NICKSERV" command, which doesn't work on all IRC networks. Judging from the notice you get, that's likely the case on the server you're trying to use.

You'll have to change the plugin to send a standard message to NickServ instead.

    Thanks. This is exactly what it was. Since I just so happen to be the IRC admin as well, I just configured command aliases.

    But this exposes a weakness in the plugin. I would think /msg NickServ would be a better choice since that should work on all irc networks.
