    I love these thigns and the way Citrix change commands sometimes.

    Try show hardware (v9.0 and higher) or sysctl netscaler (prior to v9.0)

    The sh hardware doesnt seem to tell me. Unless it is encoded here:

    Platform: NSMPX-5500 2*CPU+2*E1K+4*E1K+1*C 550000

    Tony I will proceed with awarding you the points.
    I don't have app firewall so I've concluded that I have enterprise.

    Thank you for the points.

    I've asked if that string can be decoded - I'm sure it must mean something to someone, but I also had a thought last night: can you not see the licenses on your MyCitrix page?

    I think I may have been overcomplicating things - certainly a quick check seems to suggest that you should be able to see them:
