With Smuxi from git this is working:
15:06 !irc.alt.eldslott.org Welcome to tinfoilnet.nu!
15:06 !irc.alt.eldslott.org *** You are connected using SSL cipher "RSA-AES-256-CBC-SHA1" 

The issue was probably that the server has to be added to preferences also it will try to connect to the IRCd on the SSL port but without SSL which leads to an protocol error. Smuxi should either support all options from Quick Connect correctly or at least disable/hide the unsupported fields! This also makes testing difficult as the user believes Smuxi is actually using the changed values but it still uses the values from the config instead.

Actually the issue seems to be the IRC server you connect to, some servers of tinfoilnet work others not...

And it seems like SSL is mandatory for this network.

host -t A irc.tinfoilnet.nu
irc.tinfoilnet.nu has address 90.231.251.186
irc.tinfoilnet.nu has address 79.99.0.65
Servers that work:
  • irc.alt.eldslott.org
Server that don't work:
  • irc.jordslott.org

Both servers use pretty broken certificates but I don't see a specific reason why one of them works while the other does not:
