Save this as a file called Citrix12.adm in the \windows\inf folder on your domain controller, you can then import this .adm template into the relevant Group Policy to push out the PNA URL to all your Citrix 12+ workstations.

We use a mixture of 12.3 and receiver and it works great for us.

How did you install the 12.3 client in the first place, we did a mnual install so we would have to do a manual or scripted uninstall and then a manual or scripted install, we tried to use Group Policy but because of issues with the order required for 3rd party components we had to do it manually in the end.

Could you please let me know the steps to perform manually, once the test is success then I would like to go for all the workstations.

We use altiris to push software's to workstations.
The manual procedure to change the URL is usually not necessary, upon install it should ask for the new URL, if it does not then you right click on the receiver icon in your notification area and select 'About' then expand 'Advanced' click on 'Online Plug-in Settings' and choose 'Change Server' from the menu.

For the manual installation simply uninstall the old plugin-in from Control Panel and then use the receiver installer to install the receiver.
in Citrix Receiver 3.4 under advanced there is no Online Plugin Settings available. Please guide me. I can see Connection Center, Delete Passwords, Reset Receiver only
You may need to acquire the Citrix Receiver 3.4 Enterprise version, I believe that is what we are using, it's available onthe Citrix site somewhere to registered users, the site is a pain to navigate, sorry.

This is my receiver version with the link to the online plugin showing.
