Change the PN Agent URL via registry

Posted on August 26th, 2008

The citrix PNA agent URL is hidden in HEX values in the registry.  The URL can be changed by adding a new string value located in a different key, which automatically gets moved and converted to HEX.  The original key is deleted automatically.  This is presumably a security feature to stop users on PNAgent sites from making a mess of their terminal’s config.

Open this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Citrix\Program Neighborhood Agent

Create the string value:  “Config URL” (ignore quotes)

Set the value to your pnagent URL, eg,


When you open PNAgent next, this new key will disappear, however the new URL will be used by PNAgent.

Notes:  This can also be set on a per machine basis at the registry key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\PNAgent .  Create a string value called ServerURL and set your URL value there.  Note that the HKCU value has precedence.

This procedure has changed with recent versions of PNAgent, so for full details of which keys to set, check CTX112674 .  I have proven it to work on 10.200.2650
