The present invention relates generally to the field of network communications, and more particularly to a method of and system for managing chat sessions in a network that may be bandwidth constrained. Chat sessions are used for the exchange of information between members in social or educational contexts, or in work environments.Members of teams or workgroups can exchange information within their team or workgroup through the use of a chat application.

The amount of data set over the unreliable low bandwidth network links must be minimized.

Each chat client is configurable, in response to instructions from the chat server, to operate in either a master mode or a slave mode. A chat system includes a chat server and a plurality of chat clients in a network that may be bandwidth constrained.

Each chat client is configurable, in response to instructions from the chat server, to operate in either a master mode or a slave mode.

Another problem associated with distributed chat applications in wireless or other bandwidth constrained networks is that the users do not always use the same personal communication device.

For example, the personal communication device may be installed in a police vehicle that may be assigned to different officers over the course of the day or week.
