I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are several options.
If you have a mixed office like we do (Both Windows and Linux machines), we use IRC.
(In our case we actually created a virtual server for hosting it).

If you are looking for a web based solution, I'd  suggest hipchat.
Or you can also use slack - another web based solution.

Yes web base solution . where we can install it on our server. if possible free or low budget
David SankovskySenior SysAdminCommented:
HipChat and Slack are not installed, they are hosted, and free.
I don't know any solutions that allow web based access yet installed on a private server.
They probably exist, but I don't know them.

Well it is more secure if the server is locate. i am sry. but we need a chat systems  that can be installed on a local server
Roy_HachacheAuthor Commented:
The Chat system should be installed locally and able to work on the network without the use of the internet if the net is down. well of course in one location. and when the internet id operational it can be worrlwide.
Softros is a serverless solution for local messaging.
All data transfers are secured, most of program options can be adjusted via an adminstrative  settings.
Roy_HachacheAuthor Commented: is good but does it have voice conversation and video
