Finally got an answer from Checkpoint. The answer to the conflict is
not in Norton Firewall. It turns out Checkpoint does not like the
firewall in the Beklin router I have on my home wireless network.
Checkpoint says configure its software as follows to solve the
problem.

Tools
* Configure
**Connection Profile
***Advanced
-- uncheck the last option "toute all traffic through gateway
-- save and "ok" the profile.
Reboot and login

Worked for me.
