Does RWW SBS 2008 require port 3389 to be opened?

Why does RWW on 2008 require a certificate when port 3389 (terminal service/remote desktop) must be opened anyways?  This still allows anyone to connect via the "Remote Desktop" protocol thus, bypassing any need for a certificate?  Can someone explain why the need for a certficiate to use RWW in SBS 2008 when port 3389 still exposes the server to remote access?  Thank you.

Hello isprofessionals,

no, port 3389 does NOT need to be open.
only port 443 is needed.

Thank you for your responses.   I had port 3389 initially closed but wasn't able to get RWW in SBS2008 working despite having the proper certificates on the client machines.  The above links suppsaws and MSWarrior have provided look like what I am looking for.  I will look into shortly and post my outcome.
