Re: Weechat can't login to freenode with ssl

Same for me.

I didn't change anything of the weechat client for ages. Simply started to not work suddently.
Reconfiguring SASL and all the config did not help.

The domain is no longer working, and I don't understand why there's nothing that rotates that SASL server in the freenode login mechanism if that server is no longer alive.

I have no idea about changing or blocking that server in the login process.
