what ports do i have to open in order to have a webserver , exchange, terminal  and go to the internet from the lan?

Watch Question

For webserver you need port 80 inwards if it is http, port 443 if it is https

For exchange you need port 25 for SMTP and port 110 for pop3

Do not know how to configure that in Sonicwall though.

To configure this it depends on what firmware you are using: standard or enhanced.
for standard go to firewall > access rules > add
action allow
service web http
source wan
destination lan  file in your ip range
then do same for port 25 and 3389

for enhanced

go to firewall access rules
add wan to lan rule service http
source  any
destination lan subnets

do this for each service 80,25 , 3389
