Steps:

2) Open an FTP session, using WS_FTP or CUTEFTP:
    a) setup a connection to 206.154.12.1 login id=your username; password=your password

    e) select download
 
3) Start a Browser session.
 
4) Choose  http://www.dexnet.com/homesite/hs12set.exe to download a freeware 503k html text editor (Local link soon) This will download the Homesite HTML text editor.
 
5) When the downloading steps are both complete, close the ftp and the http(browser) sessions and log off the internet.
 
6) Install  Homesite12 by running the hs12set.exe file and folling the online directions
 
7) When the installation is complete, run Homesite12.
 
8) When Homesite12 is running, in the middle of the page on the left you should see something similar to:
 
9) Browse to the C:\public_html folder  as you would in explorer.
 
10) Choose SEARCH
 
11) Choose EXTENDED REPLACE
 
12) In the EXTENDED REPLACE menu, Choose ALL documents in this folder (see below)
13) Beside find what, type lctn.com, Beside Replace with type: lctn.com.

To convert pages in Win3x: There is no application I have seen for 3.x that will change ALL the links on ALL the files in a single directory yet, if anyone else is aware of one please email me @ jjenkins@lctn.com. and I will post the link here. So as a result, there is no "ONE BEST WAY" to do this. Probably one of the easiest ways to to accomplish this is:
Steps to Convert HTML pages:
Steps:
 
1)  Create a directory on your harddrive(ex. C:\HOME)
 
2) Open an FTP session, using WS_FTP or CUTEFTP:
    a) setup a connection to 206.154.12.1 login id=your username; password=your password
    b) start directory remote=/home/username
    c) start directory local= C:\public_html
    d) Hilite EVERTHING in the REMOTE directory

    e) select download

3) Logoff the internet.

4) At this point you willneed to create another directory(ex. C:\NEWHTML)

5) Start the WRITE application and open an html file.

6) Choose edit/replace.

7) In "search for" type lctn.com.

8) In "Replace with" type lctn.com

9) Choose Replace ALL

10) Choose file/Save as

11) Change the type to "Text file"

12) Change to the C:\NEWHTML directory and click save.

13) Repeat this process for ALL your .htm files.

14) An easy way to compare the directories to make sure you're done  is to create 2 windows in file manager and sort by extension.When C:\NEWHTML has as many .htm files as C:\public_html, you should be done.

This will fix ALL your links except any that may point to pages that are physically on lctn.com, those you must change back manually. On doing this, you will be ready to upload to the new server.
