I'm not running a server but I didn't bother to remove that link although I had realized that it wasn't a problem for me.

As for UDP connections on Port 123 - it stays blocked unless I run an application called Timesync that can get the time from a list of time servers and synchronize the clock. It needs to be run manually on demand and a firewall rule has been created to allow connections on port 123 only when running this software.
