Jan 27, 2014
A service is a program the runs silently on the user device. When you create a session or preauthentication policy, you can create an expression that ensures that user devices are running a particular service when the session is established.

To configure a service policy

    1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand NetScaler Gateway > Policies and then click Session.
    2. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand NetScaler Gateway > Policies > Authentication/Authorization, and then click Pre-Authentication EPA.
  2. In the details pane, on the Policies tab, click Add.
  3. In Name, type a name for the policy.
  4. Next to Match Any Expression, click Add.
  5. In the Add Expression dialog box, in Expression Type, select Client Security.
  6. Configure the settings for the following:
    1. In Component, select Service.
    2. In Name, type the name of the service.
    3. In Qualifier, leave blank or select Version.
    4. Depending on your selection in Qualifier, do one of the following:
      • If left blank, in Operator, select == or !=
      • If you selected Version, in Operator, in Value, type the value, click OK and then click Close.

You can check a list of all available services and the status for each on a Windows-based computer at the following location:
