If you're asking how to temporarily turn iptables off, the command (by root) is:

service iptables stop

To restart, the command is:

service iptables restart

To see the current status if your firewall (iptables) the command is:

service iptables status

The Fedora-specific method is to use the command:
system-config-securitylevel

which will do the same thing (and more) with a little GUI applet.

HTH,

Jim
