How do I turn off the firewall in Ubuntu 12.04?
Thanks for the answers. The reason for turning it off was twofold: I often cannot make a wireless connectin to internet and get the server is unable to connect message or I get a message that disappears telling me my domain is not compatible with the Avahi network whatever that is. So I thought if I disable firewall I would be ok.
So my question is as follows: What command line or configuration in Ubuntu 12.04 can I use to disable or stop the Ubuntu 12.04 default firewall?
