unable to join IRC channel that is password-protected
I'm using a Spark client so that I can watch the XMPP traffic back and forth. I'm able to join an IRC channel only if it is not password-protected. If the channel requires a password, my spark client times out and it appears to be caused by the kraken plugin not recognizing or signaling that the channel requires a password.
When I'm trying to connect to a MUC conference on the openfire server itself, in the IQ response, I'll get either:
Yet for an IRC channel, I don't get either of these and there is no difference in the IQ response, whether the channel requires a password or not.
