iptables -F with flush the firewall rules.
or on Redhat products look for something like
redhat-config-security or firewall I cant remember which.

iptables -L lists the filter rules
iptables -t nat -L lists the NAT table
iptables -t mangle -L for the mangle table. (prob never use those)

By default iptables is in /sbin not /bin which is not in your path by default.

I would recommend adding the line:
to ~/.bashrc

/sbin/iptables -L lists the filter rules
/sbin/iptables -t nat -L lists the NAT table
/sbin/iptables -t mangle -L for the mangle table. (prob never use those)

If you want to shutoff iptables just run:
/sbin/service iptables stop

If you want to shutoff iptables from starting at boot up run:
/sbin/chkconfig iptables off
