If you want to use PPTP for VPN you also need to open IP protocol 53, which is GRE. Not sure why you would use PPTP instead of IPSec since PPTP has numerous vulnerabilities inherent in the protocol that allow your passwords to be cracked and the encryption to be broken.

As for the actual configuration steps I have never used Sonicwall. Sorry.

Always always use the public server wizard. You can add/delete ports from the created groups easily, but having the wizard create the objects and groups really is the best way.
