If you are really trying to only run the daemon at certain times (say because 
of a capacity issue), that could also be done from cron. I assume that 
"windows scheduler" could also shut down the rsync daemon.

Another alternative would be to run it from xinetd, and put the limits in your 
xinetd.conf file. If you really have capacity issues, then running from 
xinetd does impose some overhead, but you can possibly do some fine grain 
control that might help with the loading.
