Next Generation IRC Daemon setup guide
In this guide we're going setup an IRC daemon (server) for Debian 10.7 systems. It's expected of you to be familiar to some degree in how IRC functions. We will be using The Next Generation IRC Daemon, "a free, portable and lightweight Internet Relay Chat server for small or private networks, developed under the GNU General Public License (GPL)." --Alexander Barton
We will also utilize Atheme for our additional IRC services such as NickServ and ChanServ.
