I think this is VERY BAD advise.

Of course you ALWAYS want ot have your firewall running if  you  need
one  (and  then  you  must  take  care  to  configure  it correctly);
otherwise  you  should  just  permanently  disable  /  unconfigure  /
uninstall it.

Just disabling the firewall to get something doen  whichis  otherwise
impossible  because of problems you don;t understand is just what the
crackers are waiting for. Be aware.

NEVER disable a firewall if you need one. Not for 5 seconds.
