When I go to the FireWall Workstation and then "topology" and I press "Get Interfaces". I saw the name = NDISWANIP , ip = 0.0.0.0 and netmask = 0.0.0.0

What is the NDISWANIP interface ?

it's not a physical interface.
it's the interface that your Checkpoint see from your RAS service.

By default, windows 2000 installs three extra interfaces on your system.
You can view these by right-clicking on "My Computer" and selecting Manage.
Then RIGHT click on the Device Manager and select "View | Show Hidden Devices".  
When you expand the Network Interfaces, you should see the
following:

WanMiniPort (IP)
WanMiniPort (L2TP)
WanMiniPort (PPTP)

You must DISABLE these... these define your NDISWANIP adapter that Windows 2000 sees.  
If you uninstall them, W2K puts them back....
