I once used an IRC server for this purpose. It was hidden from the
outside world and could only be accessed via an SSH server:

   [ irc ]---<---[ ssh ]-------[ fw ]-----
                               [ lan ]  

I would recommend UnrealIRCd and Anope services (both are in ports).

Jabber is a good choice, the only downside being that there seems to be
a distinct lack of text-only clients.
