Are you running 'RedHat 5' or RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL 5)? Why do you want to disable the firewall?
The firewall in linux is called iptables. Here's how to disable it:

And here are some beginners tutorials on how to use it:

Alternatively, you can install firestarter which is a GUI frontend for iptables

Or better still, you could visit the redhat site. Here's the relevant link http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red...ide/ch-fw.html

disable the firewall


/etc/init.d/iptables stop
/etc/init.d/ip6tables stop

chkconfig --level 235 iptables off
chkconfig --level 235 ip6tables off
