Use GPO
Computer Config > Administrative Templates > Network > Network connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile  > Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections = Disabled

After that go to client machine;

Start > Run > CMD > Gpupdate /force

Reboot.

Check the Firewall in Control Panel should be disable

Disable firewall !! it is not a good idea to disable firewall.

Could you tell whats your end target from disabling the firewall ? If you are about your network security, then I think we can find a solution for your issue without opening 65000 TCP and UDP ports.
