Is there a free (of cost) software (chat, some API etc.) which allows me to send non-encrypted text messages from one Unix pc to another and read in these messages by a python script? The 2 pc-s can be in arbitrary and different networks, so things like ssh and port forwarding do not work. PS: If it is a chat it should be one which does not require phone number. Email address is ok.

    If it's not about sensible information which should be properly encrypted, IRC comes to mind. – Izzy Nov 22 '20 at 15:57
  • Do I need to set up my own server or are there some public ones which I could use? – topkek Dec 2 '20 at 9:04
  • Loads of public servers. Most well known is probably freenode. For more details, see e.g. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Relay_Chat – Izzy Dec 3 '20 at 0:50
