You can either run a Jabber/XMPP server (e. g. ejabberd) on a machine in
your LAN or use the serverless Bonjour protocol.

Using Bonjour might be useful if you have some Macintosh computers in
your network that already use it or if your network is rather small.

If your network is rather huge, I'd recommend running a Jabber/XMPP

Is it possible to use Pidgin on a local LAN network, for e.g. in an office. If so,  how would one create an account (username/password) for a user ?
