Goal: private communications channels for extended family or small group.
- Is it feasible?
- Is VPN and IRC a good solution
- Better options?
I’m new to Linux, got red pilled by Jeff on Telegram 10/21.
In the Linux Beginners class we discussed OpenVPN hosted on a VPS. I was able to install and configure and connect to an OpenVPN server hosted on Linode.
Looking forward, would it be a reasonable goal to host a IRC server (or other comm system) on a VPS and connect multiple (family / friends) over OpenVPN (or WireguardVPN) so we can talk without our conversations being easily spied on?
I found some info on building an IRC server : Run your own IRC server | Ubuntu
