There is no real firewall in AIX, and there has never been one, except for some rudimentary IPSEC filtering which is not active by default.

You can check this with

lsdev -l "ipsec*"

No output: no IPSEC (DEFAULT)
"Defined": IPSEC defined, but not active.
"Available": IPSEC active.

In the first two cases there is nothing to turn off.

Other firewalls are nodelocked ISS firewall and compiling ipfilter, neither can slip on a system unnoticed...
