          I did, that's all the output was. I can login with other irc clients, such as xchat and mirc. I also went through the source for ngircd. Sometime after sending the NICK command, something else is sent that ngircd didn't like, either too many or too less parameters. I'm pretty sure the problem is within pircbot and have contact the author there for help.

          I think the problem is this...
          1377976961868 *** Connected to server.
          1377976961870 >>>NICK jenkins
          1377976961870 >>>USER PircBot 8 * :PircBot 1.5.0 Java IRC Bot - www.jibble.org

          It's the USER command. ngircd apparently doesn't like that string. Perhaps it needs to be in quotes or something or its a parsing error.

          I created by own bot using pircbot and it did join ngircd without a problem. I'll continue investigating

          So I've confirmed that the problem is NOT pircbotx 1.8. I was able to connect to ngricd with a simple hello world bot using 1.8. The previous comment references pircbot != pircbotx, so ignore that one. So i'm not sure what the cause is here.

          THe problem was that i didn't specify a login, only a nickname. it might be worth making it a required field

          AFAIK login is not mandatory for IRC, therefore it shouldn't be a mandatory field
