A communication terminal, communication method and communication system is particularly suited for audio communications and applications such as an intercom. Multiple communication terminals may reside on a network and idle in a server mode. When communications are initiated in response to a trigger by switching a communication terminal from a server mode to a client mode, the client addresses another communication terminal and requests service in the form of a connection. The system, method and terminals may operate using TCP/IP protocol.
