Most probably, you are using a firewall called "IPFW".  This firewall 
is implemented using a series of rules, and normally one adjusts 
specific rules rather than just turning the whole thing on or off.  
Still, the following will do something close:

ipfw add 1 allow ip from any to any	# this "disables" the firewall

ipfw delete 1						# deletes the pass-all rule
