    If you have setup 'sudo',
    $ sudo /sbin/chkconfig iptables off
    $ sudo /sbin/service iptables stop

    If you haven't setup 'sudo',
    $ su -
    (type your root password)
    # chkconfig iptables off
    # service iptables stop

    UPDATE: if you prefer gui tool:
    1) Go to Main > System Settings > Security Level
    2) Type root password
    3) Choose Security Level > 'Disable firewall'
