How to Disable Windows Firewall by Command

Turn off Windows Firewall

We have learned about how to open port on windows firewall simply by commands in previous post. In this one, we'll learn how to turn off windows firewall within all scope of profiles by commands.

First of all, we open a command prompt in elevated mode (run as administrator), then input the following command.

C:\Users\Administrator>netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off
Ok.

ALLPROFILES includes public, private and domain, 3 profiles.

When an "Ok" returned, we can check the status of windows firewall in this machine.

C:\Users\Administrator>netsh advfirewall show all
