Norton VPN should have a taskbar icon showing if VPN is connected or not and should be able to turn VPN on or off. You could click on this to turn VPN off when connecting to websites that don't work with VPN on. The icon could be green when on and red when off. The split tunnel option should allow certain websites to be selected so VPN wouldn't inhibit the connection. Some posts say to put the browser app in the split tunnel list which defeats the purpose of VPN since all websites would not be protected. Another option would be to put VPN on/off in the menu you see when you right click the Norton icon.
