Was there an error?  Did you run your command prompt as administrator?

There is also this one too:

netsh advfirewall set profiles state off

Open in new window


Where "profiles" is AllProfiles, CurrentProfile, DomainProfile, PrivateProfile, or PublicProfile.

best way to disable firewall follow that steps:

At the command prompt, type the following command:

>netsh advfirewall set profiles state off

2nd option
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet, and then under Windows Firewall, click Turn Windows Firewall on or off.
2. On the General tab of the Windows Firewall Settings dialog box, select Off (not recommended), and then click OK.


3rd
Disable firewall service in computer management
open the Start Menu, type services.msc  in the search box, press Enter
and disable window firewall in it...

Registry path is
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ WindowsFirewall.

To disable the Firewall Service, in an elevated Command Prompt window, enter the following commands:

net stop MpsSvc

sc config mpssvc start= Disabled

To enable

sc config mpssvc start= Auto

net start MpsSvc

eXample:


C:\>net stop MpsSvc
The Windows Firewall service is stopping.
The Windows Firewall service was stopped successfully.


C:\>sc config mpssvc start= Disabled
[SC] ChangeServiceConfig SUCCESS

C:\>sc config mpssvc start= Auto
[SC] ChangeServiceConfig SUCCESS

C:\>net start MpsSvc
The Windows Firewall service is starting.
The Windows Firewall service was started successfully.

The Windows Firewall Service is integral part of the TCP stack starting with Vista, and you should NOT disable it. Or expect strange behaviour of network operations.
All you should do is switch the firewall off in the active or all profiles.
