The defaut page title and fav icon logo appear on the browser tab when connecting to the Citrix Access Gateway Enterprise Edition.
It is possible to replace the logo with your own one and change the text to be more appropriate.
The logo is: /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/AccessGateway.ico
replace with your own .ico file but keep the same file name
Browser title text
The title text is in two places
Search for the section:
<TITLE>Citrix Access Gateway</TITLE>
and change to your text
<TITLE>My CAG Text</TITLE>
Search for the multiple sections:
<Title>Citrix Access Gateway</Title>
and change all of them to your text
<Title>My CAG Text</Title>
Keep changes after reboot
Copy the modified files to /var/mods and add the following lines to the /nsconfig/rc.netscaler file
cp /var/mods/images/AccessGateway.ico /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/AccessGateway.ico
cp /var/mods/index.html /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/index.html
cp /var/mods/en.xml /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/resources/en.xml
New look and feel
Now it will look how you want.

This is based on Netscaler version 9.2 Build 46.9.cl although nothing appears to have changed from previous versions, so the same information will probably work on most Access Gateway Enterprise versions (CAG EE)
Change to a white theme
This is detailed in several places but most notably here: CTX123607
This gives the default logon screen in white.
Identify the images used
Here is a screen shot of the default view and list of the associated images & resolutions
There are five main images used in this page and they are:
|1||ctxHeader01.bmp||265 x 62|
|2||ctxHeader02.bmp||1175 x 62|
|3||LoginIcon.png||81 x 128|
|4||CitrixWatermark.gif||115 x 62|
I have found it better to stick to the same dimensions when replacing these images as sometimes the style sheets need to be modified to allow larger image sizes. If you can, stick to the same dimensions.
The background for image 1 & 2 is in the image itself. If you want to keep the same shading and blue bar, then edit the existing image and keep the background.The same applies for the logon logo (image 3) as the shading is part of the image.
To modify the border glow it is best to open up the existing image and use the dropper tool to fill the line in the desired colour.
These image files need to be copied to the /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn_images location on the Netscaler device. However, when the netscaler is rebooted the changes are lost so they must be copied here at every startup.
Copy all the images to a folder under the /var/ folder (I use /var/mods/) and this can be the store for all modifications.
The /nsconfig/rc.netscaler file runs at every boot, so add entries to this file to copy the modified files from the /var/mods/ folder to the correct location. For example,
tar -zxvf /var/mods/AGEEwhite.gz -C /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images
cp /var/mods/images/ctxHeader01.gif /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/ctxHeader01.gif
cp /var/mods/images/ctxHeader02.gif /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/ctxHeader02.gif
cp /var/mods/images/CitrixWatermark.gif /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/CitrixWatermark.gif
cp /var/mods/images/LoginIcon.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginIcon.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneCenterLeftBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneCenterLeftBorderGlow.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneCenterRightBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneCenterRightBorderGlow.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneFooterLeftBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneFooterLeftBorderGlow.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneFooterMidBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneFooterMidBorderGlow.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneFooterRightBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneFooterRightBorderGlow.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneTopLeftBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneTopLeftBorderGlow.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneTopMidBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneTopMidBorderGlow.png
cp /var/mods/images/LoginPaneTopRightBorderGlow.png /netscaler/ns_gui/vpn/images/LoginPaneTopRightBorderGlow.png
Ensure you boot the netscaler device to confirm the start up script is running correctly and make the same changes to the secondary device if running in an HS pair.
The web page can now look how you want it to!

Citrix Access Gateway Enterprise Edition scope and limitations for end point scanning rule base
This is based on my findings with CAG Enterprise Edition 8.1 build 58.5.
- Internet Explorer
- End Point Analysis Policies
- Pre-Authentication policies
- Authorization policies
- Session policies
- Allowing access to some applications through CAG
- Trust XML Requests
- Restricting access to specific applications
- Allowing any Connection for an application
- Allowing some connections for an application – tied to session policies
- Applying a Citrix Policy based on the outcome of an EPA scan
