Taken out of netcat.Irc as it was confusing users following the ngircd bootcamp doc. Needs to find a new home that clarifies its use. The bootcamp doc for ngircd recommends not using the password feature so PASS isn't used when logging into it, but the znc bouncer does use PASS for logging in so this process is needed for testing it with netcat. perhaps a netcat.znc should be created?
If you have a password for your connection, it should be entered before the NICK/USER commands.
