Remote Desktop Gateway for Window 2008

What's the use of Remote Desktop Gateway ? Without the Remote Desktop Gateway, my remote users could also connect to my internal Terminal if I open port 3389 with NAT on the firewall. So, why do I need RD Gateway ? Does it mean that I could just open 443 instead of 3389 for remote client to connect using remote desktop as usual ?

Thanks

Yes, that's true. But you need to do it for every server :) RD Gateway allows you to connect to your "RD Hosts farm" from single point in the Internet :)
