Morning all,

General question re. mIRC use. A few of us are looking to use a server for some basic chat purposes through work. Is there a free, generic server that we can access at any time? There would never be more than four of us chatting at any one time. Or, do I need to create my own server?

Any help would be appreciated.

And what is the actual problem? By itself, IRC chat and all possible servers collected in a single network are free for access and communication on them.
In the mIRC client out of the box, after installation, there is already a large list of different networks with many servers.
It's weird that my network hasn't been added to this list yet: EpicNet.Ru (irc.epicnet.ru:6667) cool

Run mIRC. Press the key combination "ALT+O". Go to the drop-down submenu "Connect βž” Servers" and choose the server that suits you, where it will be convenient for you to communicate.
After connecting to the server, you can go to the channel under any name convenient for you. Command: "/join #Channel" (if the chosen name for the channel does not contradict the internal rules of the network).
It is advisable to register your channel on the services to obtain management rights. After that, you can moderate and make your channel closed from outside visits.

If you meant that someone would turn on a under Linux operating system server machine for you, where an IRCd program would be installed to provide a working IRC chat so that only 4 people could connect to this server, then it would not be advisable. You should understand that any work of such a server working machine requires regular payment of money for the service of a virtual machine. Or if it is a home computer, then the payment will be payment for connecting to a stable Internet + additional installation of an uninterruptible power supply device and for protection against power surges + payment for electricity + regular maintenance to remove dust inside a constantly working computer and replace burnt-out parts.
