  1. Start automatically if any ports are open, and stop when all ports are closed is a combination of the service itself and the firewall rules. In example:

    When you configure this startup policy for the NTP client service, the service is automatically started when the NTP client rule in the firewall configuration is enabled and the required ports are opened.

    If you disable the firewall rule for the NTP service again, the service automatically stops running. Not entirely sure why you would want this but that would be the explanation.
