I've never heard of bc authentication, but for the standard authentication
on every NNTP server I've seen, you just need to make sure that the
username is the one the server wants.  If it's the same as your login name
on your own system, just enter the password.  If it's different, put
/user=username at the end of the nntp-serverr line in .pinerc.
