Oops, I didn't read carefully enough. "inetd lookalike" indeed
describes the kind of service and ports ;). I still don't know if udev
is or is not the right tool to take action, if this kind of port is
touched. However, regarding "rules" (if ... then), I suspect that udev
is more likely the needed tool, than systemd.
