I cannot connect to FreeNode via TOR using SASL

I tried to connect to FreeNode via TOR and directed to this web site.

I have registered and verified by nickname with nickserv on FreeNode.

Then I downloaded the XChat SASL plugin from here.

I set it up the way it told me to.

When I try and connect to the hidden service I am rejected being told I need to use SASL. What could I have done wrong and how can I find out>
